Bhubaneswar Airport Granted e-Visa Facility

Bhubaneswar: In a development which would give a big boost to international tourist arrivals to Odisha, the Biju Patnaik International Airport here has been granted the much-awaited e-visa facility. The e-visa counter has also started operating at the airport from January 16, Airport director Suresh Chandra Hota told Odisha Bytes.

The approval came through the Centre’s notification on December 31, 2018. Bhubaneswar airport now joins 28 other airports in the country having this facility.

The main advantage of e-visa is that the travellers no longer need to come to the embassy or consulate of the destination country, in this case India. The application for the visa can be completed online. The Indian e-Visa allows for double entry, with a maximum stay of 60 days per entry.

Upbeat over the development, the travel and tourism industry in the State exuded confidence of a significant jump in international tourist arrivals, especially from south east Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
