India to Approve e-Visas for MICE Delegates

India Approve e-Visas for MICE Delegates
Indian Home Ministry will soon approve the proposal to grant e-tourist visas to the ‘Meetings, Conferences and Events’ (MICE) delegates. The Ministry turned down the request earlier, citing “security concerns”.

After withholding the decision for more than a year, the Indian Government has finally come forward to grant e-visas for the MICE (Meetings Incentives, Conferences Exhibition) segment. The Tourism Ministry’s repeated requests compelled the Home Ministry to approve it.     

A top official from the Tourism Ministry stated “We have made a strong case to the MHA to allow MICE e-visas this time. Currently, anyone who wants to come to India for a casual business trip is granted an e-visa. So if a business tourist can come to India casually, why not to hold a conference? However, in order to make sure that the topic of conference is not   unfavorable to the state — (which had actually caused the MHA to raise a red flag) the MHA and the MEA can issue an NOC to the corporate seeking visa.”

According to the Tourism and Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma’s statement, MICE is the biggest sector for generating revenue, as the businesses combine visiting places and shopping. The Government’s nod will improve India’s position in the MICE division. Germany, Spain, France and the UK are popular destinations for the MICE conventions.
