While inspirational quotes tell you to just “book a flight ticket, pack your bags and travel the whole world,” what they don’t tell you is about the many complications in between. Getting a visa, for instance. If you are an Indian citizen, you can’t just book a ticket and travel anywhere across the globe. There are some legalities to be done before that. There was a time when travelling abroad meant planning months in advance to deal with the gruelling task of acquiring documents and proofs, standing in long queues, and answering investigative questions – all for getting your visa application approved. But boy, the times have changed! Globetrotting to a plethora of countries is now plain sailing, thanks to E-Visa (Electronic Visa). An E-Visa is an official legal document issued by the Immigration Department that authorises you to enter (and travel) a foreign country. The whole process – from filing the forms to making payment – takes place online and thus, is uncomplicated. Once approved you’ll get your E-Visa delivered to your email. Easy-peasy!
