My husband is Indian and I’m writing this post so I can easily check what countries are visa-free or visa-on-arrival for Indian passport holders. 🙂 I hope it will help some people as well!
So first off, here are the types of tourist visas that you need.
- VISA-FREE – This means that you don’t need a visa to enter that country but you can only stay within a specific period.
- VISA-ON-ARRIVAL – This means you’ll need to get the visa to enter the country when you land at the airport. Sometimes they’ll require a passport-sized photo so just to be safe, always bring a photo with you. Also, VOA usually has visa fees involved so just make sure you check the fees so you’ll have cash to pay for it.
- E-VISA – This means that you can apply for the visa online. You’ll probably get a notification and then feel free to print it out.
- VISA-REQUIRED – This means you have apply for a visa at the embassy or consulate of the country you’ll be going to. There will be requirements which varies from country to country so make sure to apply with the proper timings in mind.
Friendly reminder: It’s better and safe to always carry these around with you when you travel to visa-free, eVisa or visa-on-arrival countries.
- Always bring passport-sized photos.
- Always bring cash in local currency.
- Always bring a pen.
- And always print your return ticket or save it on your ibook or take a screenshot of it so it’s accessible even without internet.
