Visitors from the USA accounted one third of all tourist visa-on-arrivals issued at Indian airports last month.

The figures, released by India’s Ministry of Tourism, show that 33.7% of the 21,476 e-tourist visas issued in July 2015 were to American citizens. Australian travellers accounted for the second highest proportion (7.7%), followed by France (7.1%), Germany (6.8%), the UAE (6.7%) and Canada (6.3%).

The Indian government launched the tourist visa-on-arrival scheme in November 2014 and has since extended it to 77 countries.

New Delhi‘s Indira Gandhi International Airport issued 43.0% of the visas, while 20.7% were processed at Mumbai‘s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Bengaluru (10.4%), Chennai (10.3%) and Hyderabad (5.3%) airports were the other main points of entry.
