A roster of countries offering VISA On Arrival for Indian Citizens.

Who doesn’t love to travel all around the world? It’s the most fascinating thing in our lives, to explore new vistas, relishing each moment of our stay in a foreign nation or country mingling with their natives and imbibing their culture and tradition for the time they stay. To completely blend in with the people, live a new life, fill our senses with fresh information and feelings. 

And finally, in return, we carry those memories and cherish them long after we have gone from a foreign land to our native country.

One of the vital things among documents to carry for your international stay is thy VISA ( Visitors International Stay Admission ).

The VISA is an important document of identification of an individual traveling or staying in an international country. It is authorized by the International Nation itself.

It contains details such as your Professional Photo, Full name, Country of Birth ( to ascertain your Nationality in short), Sex or gender, USCIS#, category, and finally the operational period of the visa ( includes the date of authorization and the date of its expiry ).

Let’s see the few types of VISA now – 

  1. The Tourist VISA for traveling purposes
  2. Immigration and naturalization Visa for the purpose of staying in a foreign country 
  3. Student Visa for an academic stay in the international country
  4. Business or Work Visa for a professional stay in an international company.

Having a particular visa to cater to your needs is very helpful.

Some of the other variants of VISA can be delineated as : 

  1. VOA – The acronym stands for

Visa On Arrival. It is granted to travelers when they are an entry port to an International country.

  1. E-VISA: When the standard VISA is issued on the internet instead of applying on pen and paper as documents, it is called an E – Visa.

It is also sanctioned by the International Wing of the Country you’re traveling to.

  1. Entry Permit – The entry permit allows non-native to not only enter but stay in an international country for a strict and specific period. It is the same as the E visa but the only point of difference lies in the mode of availing these two types of VISA.
  2. A Dependent Visa allows a person’s family ( wife and children ) to live in an international country.
