E-visa Arrival Implemented: Karan

The visa on arrival to India has been implemented, says Fiji’s High Commissioner to India Yogesh Karan.

This is following the launching of the electronic visa facility for visitors from 43 countries by the Indian government.

The facility will enable visitors from both countries to apply for an e-visa on the designated website and pay the fee online to get an electronic travel authorisation (ETA) within 72 hours.

“I consider this visit as a very successful one, there have been discussions during our bilateral meetings between both governments,” Mr Karan said.

“We have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and just from today the visa arrival is implemented so anyone can just log onto the computer and apply for a visa. It saves the hassle of going right to the mission and travelling all over Fiji to gain access to it.

“You don’t need to come to Suva for your visa just like in any other country and this is a great achievement.”

He said the challenges faced by those intending to obtain a visa to travel to India would be no more.

“At any time in India you can enjoy four seasons, your visit could be a vacation, to meet friends, educational or medical,” he said.

“I think it usually takes three to four days before to get visas. There will be more people coming and it’s at ease now.

The visa on arrival scheme was announced during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s state visit to Fiji on November 19.
