Good news for Malaysian as India e-Visa price reduced and duration changed

From family vacations to pilgrimage tours, Malaysians have long been loyal visitors to India.

Previously, the Indian government decided to scrap the over-the-counter tourist visa (USD 40 for 6 months) for Malaysians and introduced the more expensive one and five-year visas, costing USD 100 (RM 407) and USD 200 (RM 814) respectively.

Then the government introduced multiple entry e-Visa which was priced at USD 82 (RM 362) for a duration of one year. This sudden hike in visa fees left many Malaysians deeply unhappy.

Luckily, the Indian government has introduced new changes in e-Visa terms, where applicants can opt to choose between 30 days, 1-year or 5-year e-Visa for a much cheaper price.

Check out the latest e-Visa price here:

30 days (April to June): USD10 (RM43)

30 days (July to March): USD25 (RM106)

1 year: USD40 (RM169)

5 years: USD80 (RM337)

*The abovementioned fee (RM) is based on the USD-MYR currency exchange rate on 4th Septermber 2019

According to its official website, the Indian e-Visa ‘involves a completely online application for which no facilitation is required by any intermediary/agents’. A bank charge of 2.5% will be imposed on the e-Visa fee during the application.

However, there are no changes in the over-the-counter Visa fees.
