The Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Civil Aviation have relaxed visa norms for travel to and from India, taking a step further towards regular international flight operations.
“Restrictions on the entry into India of OCI cardholders from countries with which MoCA has ‘air bubble’ arrangements have been removed. They are welcome to enter India,” the ministry of civil aviation said.
In addition, foreign nationals belonging to countries with which India has ‘air bubble’ arrangements can now avail Indian visa facility for business, medical and employment purposes in the country.
So far, only limited categories of people who had resident permits were allowed to travel on international flights.
