Indian Visa for Malaysian Tourists Increased 240%!!
Yesterday, there is a revised for Indian Visa for Malaysians. The new Visa rate for Malaysian tourists increased 240% from previous rates. It sounds like an April Fool’s prank but it is not. In fact, there are many websites still showing the old Indian visa rates for Malaysians.
How much is the new Indian Visa rates for Malaysians?
The old rates for Indian Visa for Malaysians was RM 190 and now it is priced at RM 457 effective 1st April 2017. The Indian Visa is for up to six months of single to multiple entries to India for Malaysians.
There are many flights from Malaysia to India especially from airlines like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia and Malindo Airways. With such a high increase of Indian Visa for Malaysians, will it affect the numbers of Malaysians visiting India?
We never visited India before and to pay RM 457 for a tourist visa, we might have to think twice. For Malaysians visiting India for the first time, please take note that you are required to apply a tourist visa and it is RM 457 now.
