Subhash Goyal, president, Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) has expressed his happiness on the announcement of e-Tourist Visa facility for Chinese nationals as announced by the prime minister Narendra Modi during his visit to China. This announcement will give a major boost in the tourist arrivals from China which is a growing market for India.

Goyal said, “We had been pleading for extending e-Tourist Visa facility for nationals from China, UK, Italy, Poland, etc. as these countries provide tourists round the year and these countries were not included in the earlier announcements. It is really a positive step and exemplifies the working style of the prime minister to move the things forward especially for tourism purpose. We are confident that in the next phase all other countries like UK, Italy, Poland, etc. will also be added, which I am sure will increase the growth of tourism to double digit in next two years.”

He also mentioned that we have requested the ministry of home affairs and ministry of tourism of allowing multi entry under e-Tourist Visa so that members who wants to visit neighbouring countries along with India can also apply for e-Tourist Visa.
