India Considering 14 Day Free Single Entry for Malaysians
The Minister of Human Resources (Menteri Sumber Manusia Malaysia) M. Kulasegaran released a press release statement yesterday stating that India Considering 14 Day Free Single Entry for Malaysians. This is good news as we are considering to visit India (since a few years ago).
You can read the official statement below.
In short, India is now considering a 14-day visa free single entry for Malaysians after he raised the issue with India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj during his visit to New Delhi last week.
India External Affairs Minister has agreed to consider the request and will let Malaysia know as soon as they make decision on the matter.
The price of India’s eVisa increased from Rm 200 to RM 320 this July and they tried to increase the visa 240% last year but the Indian High Commissioner to Malaysia T.S. Tirumurti managed to maintain the eVisa fees. Over the counter India Visa is priced at RM462.56 (excluding service charges) and is valid for one year.
We hope India can consider the 14 Day Free Single Entry for Malaysians as this will encourage more Malaysians to travel to India and spend more too! The revenue from the travellers will be more than the Visa fees for sure and that will help to boost the India local tourism economy.
If there is 14 Day Free Single Entry for Malaysians, we might make our way to India next year for traveling. We just have to wait and see for it!
