One-Fourth of the e-Tourist Visas Issued to the Britons
As per the recent figures shared by the India Tourism Office located at London, the British travelers account for roughly one-fourth of the e-visas issued worldwide.

Britons had appreciated the e-Tourist Visa (eTV) facility initiated by the Indian government, since its beginning in the year 2015. Britons applied for about 197,788 e-visas out of the total of 881,817 e-visas issued globally.

During the year 2015, approximately 900 000 e-visas were issued; the UKheld the maximum market share globally. It topped the list of the 113 nations; passport holders of which availed the e-visa facility.

India being the most popular destination for the tourists from the UK approximately 870, 000 visitors from UK came to India in the year 2015. This year during the month of July only over 16 % of the total foreign tourists arriving it India were from the UK.

“Until August last year, British visitors had to go through a process of booking an appointment and presenting relevant documentation at visa processing centers, a relatively long process. Now, the India e-Tourist Visa Scheme has vastly simplified travel to India and is a proven success. The scheme is expected to boost UK tourist arrivals to India, assisting in India Tourism’s aim to attract one million UK visitors to the country”, said Raj Sunani, assistant director at India Tourism Office London.

The eTV facility in India was initially launched on a restricted basis during November 2014, for the citizens of only 77 nations. Later during 2015, it was extended to cover 113 nations across the globe, including UK.
