Tourists visiting India on e-visa can now stay up to two months, and enjoy double-entry benefits while those coming for treatment can avail triple-entry facility. Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today that a new liberalised visa regime has been rolled out by the government beginning April 1 under which tourists coming on e-visa can stay up to two months with double-entry benefits. “Duration of stay on e-visa increased from 30 days to 60 days with double entry on tourist and business e-visas and triple entry on medical e-visa,” he said in a statement. Earlier, a tourist coming on e-visa could stay in India up to 30 days only. With the double-entry benefits, tourists can visit neighbouring countries like Bhutan and can return to India within the stipulated time. “The government has liberalised its visa regime to promote tourism, business travel and attract potential investors to the country,” Singh said. Effective April 1, e-visa has been sub-divided into three categories – e-tourist visa, e-business visa and e-medical visa.
