Visa quotas should be lifted and people should visit anywhere they wish freely.
Are you the sort of person who loves to travel but are completely turned off by the time and energy visa application processes take?
Well, did you know that there are over 50 countries around the world that have visa free or visa on arrival access for Indian passport holders?
Here’s our guide to the countries that are visa free and do not currently require an advance, in-person visa application for Indians—compiled from websites, including VisaHQ; the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) database on the Qantas website; the visa division of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs; and individual consulates and embassies. Of course, rules keep changing, so please check with the relevant embassy or consulate before making your travel plans.
