Indian Visas to Cost 50% More for Foreign Nationals
The Indian government has decided to raise visa fees for foreign nationals across the board in an effort to modify and rationalise the charges levied for acquiring an Indian Visa. The government has decided to up the visa fee by 50% across different categories.
This government move is being seen as a tit-for-tat measure as the hike in visa for short-term employment visa comes as a reciprocal measure, with countries such as the US, Australia, and New Zealand planning or already placing curbs on work visa for Indians. In spite the fact that foreign nationals working in India are quite few, government officials justified this move saying visa fee structure has always been dependent on periodicity and reciprocity.
As per government notification, a tourist visa for will now cost as follows:
For visas up to 1 year: $153 instead of the earlier $100.
For visas over 1 year and up to 5 years: $306 instead of the earlier $120.
Visa up to 1 year for UK nationals: $248 compared to the earlier $162.
Visa for over a year and up to 5 years for UK nationals: $741 instead of the earlier $484.
For employment visas, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Thailand nationals will now have to pay $459 for visas spanning over 1 year and up to 5 years, instead of the $300 charged earlier.
For short-term working visas, Israeli nationals pay up the highest with the new fee being $1,714, increased from the previous fee of $1,120. Pakistani citizens across all categories have to pay Rs.100 now, instead of Rs.15.
