Reciprocity

There have been a small number of bilateral agreements that have resulted in reciprocity in visa arrangements. Most of the visa relationships are mostly one sided. This has led to a restriction on the freedom of an Indian traveler to foreign countries along with restrictions on travel from countries which have traditionally welcomed Indian citizens with liberal visa policies.

Full Reciprocity

Nepal and Bhutan are two countries that have full reciprocity in Visa free/e-Visa Privileges.

Passport Validity

The requirements of most of the countries is that

  • The passport must be valid for no less than six months
  • It must have at least 1 or 2 blank pages
