Getting a visa is probably the first thing that comes to mind when planning a trip abroad. Prepare to spend a significant amount of time online researching the difficult visa application processes for the countries you intend to visit.

However, did you know that there are a number of countries where Indian citizens do not require a visa? And there are a few more places where you might be able to get a visa on arrival? You are correct.

This blog features for you the top 6 destinations for Indians where you don’t have to bother about having a visa on priority: –

1: THAILAND

This South-East Asian country is well-known for its beautiful temples, delectable cuisine, rich cultural history, and exceptionally friendly locals. The Thai people’s unrivalled hospitality can be found throughout the country. Some of the islands, such as Koh Samui, Phi Phi, and Koh Pha Ngan, are now popular tourist destinations.

Visa on Arrival is available here. All you need here is:

  • Passport: must be valid for at least six months 
  • A digital photo of yourself (taken within the last three months) 
  • Your travel dates
  • Airline confirmation 
  • Hotel information 
  • Credit/debit card 
  • PayPal account for payment 
  • Vaccination certificate

2: MALAYSIA

Malaysia truly deserves to be referred to as the “True Asia.” Malaysia is so diverse that it looks like two countries joined together and divided by the South China Sea. Malaysia is a peninsular territory with vibrant cities, modern towns, colonial structures, and tea plantations on one side and vast jungles on the other. FOOD is the only constant in everything.

  • You can get an E-Visa or ENTRI here.
  • Passport (valid for at least six months) 
  • Travel Documents 
  • Travel Itinerary 
  • Return flight ticket with E-Ticket number 
  • Hotel reservation/invitation letter from your host 
  • Work/Residence Permit, if living abroad

3: MALDIVES 

This archipelago in the Indian Ocean southwest of Sri Lanka attracts a lot of tourists due to its white sand beaches and clear ocean waters. The Maldives is also a popular destination for honeymooners.

  • A Visa on arrival will be available to you.
  • This visa is valid for 30 days and can be extended to 90 days.
  • A valid COVID 19 vaccination certificate is required.
  • The best time to visit this location is from mid-December to early April. 

4: BHUTAN

Bhutan is an Indian neighbour with whom we have friendly relations. It is well-known for developing the Gross National Happiness Index concept. Bhutan is a remarkably active country. It has a diverse range of fauna and landscapes. It promotes travel and welcomes visitors, but it also charges a daily fee of USD $250 to offset the environmental damage caused by travel. However, neither a tax nor a visa are required for Indian citizens. Bhutan’s only national airline is Druk Air, and ground transportation is also available. Bhutan’s government, conscious of its unique culture and environment, only allows a limited number of visitors to enter the country at one time.

  • In most cases, you do not need a visa to enter the country.
  • A 6-month valid Indian passport 
  • Two passport-sized photographs 
  • Voter ID 
  • Booking Details of Your Stay 
  • A copy of your marriage certificate 
  • A valid COVID 19 vaccination certificate

5: INDONESIA

Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago, is a kaleidoscope of flavours, sights, sounds, and fragrances. The country, which is spread out over an astounding 17,000 islands, offers a wide range of experiences that draw visitors from all over the world. For the intrepid traveller, Indonesia has it all, from the smouldering volcanoes of central Java to the verdant stretches of Bali’s rice terraces, from Jakarta’s massive luxury malls to the pristine marine environment of Rajah Ampat and the lush jungles of Borneo.

  • A visa will be issued to you upon arrival.
  • A valid passport (valid for at least 6 months from the date of arrival) is required.
  • Return tickets are required.
  • A valid COVID 19 vaccination certificate is required.

6: NEPAL

Nepal is India’s northern neighbour, and the two countries have a “special relationship” that allows nationals of both countries to freely cross the border. Nepal can be entered without a passport or visa. There are also opportunities for living and working there. Nepal attracts a large number of visitors because it is the home of Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain. Nepal is a beautiful country with beautiful rural areas and scenery at various altitudes. The culture and sights are fascinating, and as an Indian citizen, you can easily travel there by land or air. Furthermore, if you enjoy hiking, Nepal is a must-see destination. Because of its proximity to India, this country is also visa-free for Indian citizens.

  • You will not need a Visa to enter the country.
  • Indian nationals could work and live in Nepal (according to the 1950 Indo-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship.)
  • A Passport, Voter ID, Driving License, and Ration Card are required, as well as an ID issued by the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu.

As a result, the top seven countries listed above are the best for Indians to visit. We can also say that these are must-see destinations for Indians. Also, while traveling, do not forget to consider some of the important travel tips. The best part is that you don’t really need a Visa!
