I’m in Nepal. Visa on arrival. No hassles. Nepal loves tourists.
India still requires a visa in advance for Canadians, a stupid and time consuming process from the days of the Raj.
Though open-for-business Modi promised Obama it was coming,
it’s not yet here.
India is working on a proposal for visa on arrival (VoA) facility for US tourists, one of the big-ticket announcements expected to be made during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s high-profile visit to the US beginning September 26. …
Since 2010 visa on arrival was available for citizens of these nations: Finland, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos, Myanmar, Indonesia and South Korea.
Yet they cannot bloody add more nations to that list? 😦
UPDATE – The list has been expanded to 43 nations including the USA. … But NOT Canada. NOT U.K.
