India relaxes e-Visa norms for Chinese

The Embassy of India in Beijing said that Government of India has decided to further liberalise its e-visa policy for Chinese nationals. The liberalisation is from the perspective of duration and fee of e-visas.

From October 2019 onwards, Chinese nationals can apply for e-Tourist visa (e-TV) of a 5 year validity with multiple entries. The visa fee for this 5 year multiple entry e-TV will be US$ 80.

In addition, it has also been decided that prospective tourists can avail single entry 30 day validity e-TV at a reduced visa fee of US$ 25. For a 30 day e-TV during the months of April to June, the visa fee will be only US$ 10.

The one year multiple entry e-TV will continue to be offered but at a reduced visa fee of US$ 40.

In addition to the above e-TV, the existing e-medical visa, e-conference visa and the one year multiple entry e-business visa will continue to be issued from the online platform of Indian visas.

It is anticipated that this unilateral liberalisation of e-TV for Chinese nationals will further enhance people-to-people exchanges between the two countries and encourage more Chinese tourists to choose India as a destination for tourism purposes.
