India authorises visa-on-arrival for 43 countries

???????????????????????????????NEW DELHI: Visa-on-Arrival and Electronic Travel Authorisation for 43 countries, including  United States, Australia, Fiji and Pacific Island countries is expected to be in place on November 27.

Following Prime Minister Narendra’s Modi’s announcement in this regard,  a draft Bill for amending the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, which will enable merger of the PIO (Person of Indian Origin) and OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India) schemes, is expected to be brought to the Cabinet for approval shortly, according to a release from the Prime Minister’s Office.

The government has already announced fulfilment of the announcements made by the prime minister — such as granting visa for life to PIO card holders, exemption from police reporting for PIOs staying in India for  long term  and issuance of long term (10 year) visas to US nationals on a reciprocal basis. – From the Hindustan Times
