Countries which offer visa on arrival to Indian citizens


Filling out visas is a cumbersome process as it entails visits to the embassy, multiple forms, showing salary slips, tax returns, bank statements, etc.

If you are an ardent traveler and all this seems like too much of a hassle, you can simply opt to visit a country that does not require a visa or provides visa on arrival.

As of 2019, 25 countries can be visited by Indians without a visa while 39 countries provide Indians with a visa on arrival. While this may seem like a small number as compared to countries like the UAE (167), Germany (166) and Singapore (165), it includes a number of exotic travel destinations some of which have been listed below.

An important point to note though is that you should have at least 6 months of validity on your passport and maintain the passport with you at all times during your stay. It is also advisable to get travel insurance from reputed companies like Bharti AXA to protect you from unforeseen events like loss or theft of passport, delayed baggage or hospitalization during travel.
