MOEA introduces new visa category for researchers and entrepreneurs
Providing visas for entrepreneurs and researchers across the world who are willing to visit India is now hassle-free. Visas will be provided based on criteria such as innovation in technology sector, job creation portal, and to ease dissemination of products and services among others.
However, one should understand that there is no provision for permanent residence, as of now. There is the availability of either business or employment visas for entrepreneurs who are visiting India. Those who avail these visas have to undergo police annual registration and should mandatorily visit their home country for the visa renewal process.
Indian government’s decision of introducing a new visa category has helped a lot of people across the world as people who wanted to visit India for research reasons had always preferred to take up tourist visas and conduct research informally. This is because applying for research visas was always complicated and time-consuming.

Government Revamps E-visa Scheme for International Travellers
Recently, the Indian government announced a revamp of the E-Visa scheme for international travellers visiting India including those visiting from New Zealand. This is for travellers who are looking to visit solely for purposes like recreation, sightseeing, casual visit to meet relatives or friends, for a short duration medical treatment or for a casual business visit. This visa facility is being offered in addition to visa services already being offered at the Indian High Commission in Wellington. This E-visa application process is based online and does not require any service of an intermediary or agent. Due to this, the High Commission is advising travelers to be wary about any unscrupulous elements who may claim to offer a speedy or express E-visa service and charge travelers with fees for a non-existent service.

India Hopeful Of Positive Spin From US Visa Re-Haul
The Indian government was hopeful that the U.S. review of its H-1B visa program would take into account how Indian companies and individuals have cemented bilateral ties and contributed to the American economy.
With the United States reviewing its work visa program, a number of Indian companies were apprehensive of a reduction in the number of visas to be issued in future.
With 17% of the total number of H-1B visas issued being allocated to India, companies and the government were waiting with bated breath for news of any changes to the visa program.
With the rise in protectionism among legislators in America, the review was seen as a hostile step by many countries whose citizens benefit from the work permit program.
However, Indian officials have cautioned against giving in to rumour-mongering regarding any proposed changes and are confident India will benefit from any changes.
