No e-visa at Mopa; guests to be deported

Panaji: In what could be a major setback for Goa’s tourism industry, barely two months before the onset of the tourism season, the Manohar International Airport (MIA) – where a substantial number of flights have been diverted from Dabolim – does not offer the e-visa facility. 

According to an official communication available with The Goan, international guests arriving at MIA, Mopa will not have access to the e-visa facility for India. The facility is available only at Dabolim airport. 

“We have been informed by Air India that e-visa facility for India is not available for guests arriving at GOX airport till further notice…The permission on e-visa to land in Goa is only applicable to GOI (Dabolim) airport and not to GOX (Mopa) airport. If a passenger lands at GOX with e-visa, he/she will be deported/RTL on the same flight by immigration,” it said.
