New Fee Structure for e-Tourist Visa (e-TV) Scheme

This is in connection with the visa fees charged for visas sought under the e-TV scheme by nationals of 113 countries, presently covered in the e-TV scheme.

A uniform fee of USD 60 was charged from nationals of all countries benefitting from the e-TV scheme, till recently. However the fee structure for e-TVs have since been rationalised in relation to the fees charged for conventional visas and a 4-slab fee structure has been put into place and made operational. This is to offset the substantial difference that existed between the fees for e-TV and a conventional tourist visa (6 months, multiple entry) which resulted in inadequate off-take of the e-TV facility, thereby creating distortions in their projected shares.

Taking MHA's views also into account, the Ministry finalised a 4-slab fee structure, with the lowest slab being fixed at USD 0 (zero), the highest slab at USD 60 (sixty), and two intermediate slabs at USD 25 (twenty-five) and USD 48 (forty-eight). All countries (113) currently benefitting from the e-TV scheme have been assigned to one of the 4 slabs. Relevant fee details are as follows:
