ABU DHABI.
Emiratis travelling to India will now be given visa-on-arrival at six international Indian airports, provided their stay does not exceed 60 days, said a report.

The new visa-on-arrival scheme will not be available to UAE nationals visiting the subcontinent for the first time, said a report in Emirates news agency WAM.

First-time visitors will be required to apply for an e-visa or paper visa at Indian consular posts, it said.

Emiratis visiting India under the new visa-on-arrival scheme will be required to fill a form and present it along with their disembarkation card at immigration counters, the report cited the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as saying.

The form is available to print online at https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/visa-on-arrival.htm and should be presented to the visa officer at the visa counters on arrival at the six international Indian airports: Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.

UAE passports should have a minimum validity of six months remaining for visas on arrival. Such visitors should not have residency or be employed in India, the report said.
