No Visa, No Problem: 5 Countries That Offer Visa On Arrival

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Planning a spontaneous festive holiday, but been to Goa too many times? Not enough time to run around getting that visa? Well, fret not: Here are five countries that accept visa on arrival for Indians. Best of all, none of them will break the bank.


    There is a whole lot more to Thailand than what is usually mentioned, and you can count on being pleasantly surprised once you land. They offer a visa on arrival at your first point of entry/landing, at a visa fee of THB 2,000. Totally worth it.

    Fly to: Suvarnabhumi Airport {Bangkok}

    Currency used: Thai Baht {THB 1 = INR 1.87 approx.}


    This beautiful destination, which incidentally is a great option for couples as well large groups, offers Indians a visa on arrival which is valid for one month.

    Fly to: Ngurah Rai International Airport {Bali}

    Currency used: Indonesian Rupaiah {1 Rupaiah = INR 0.0050 approx.}


    Perfect for a quick winter destination especially, this country {which has a huge number of ancient monuments, nature reserves and seaside resorts} offers a visa on arrival that is, unfortunately, valid for only two weeks. Hey, you can always go back again!

    Fly to: Queen Alia International Airport

    Currency used: Jordinian Dinar {JOD 1 = INR 94.19 approx.}

    Jeju Island, South Korea

    This is the only place in South Korea that offers Indian tourists the option of visa on arrival {valid for one month}.

    With a rugged, volcanic landscape, the option to go on scenic hikes, an amazing waterfall, and a crater lake, this one is definitely on our list of must-visit places.

    Fly to: Jeju International Airport

    Currency used: South Won {1 South Won = INR 0.058 approx.}


    There’s a whole lot of things one can do in Laos, so it makes us happy that we get a visa on arrival for one month.

    Fly to: Luang Prabang International Airport

    Currency used: Laotian Kip {LAK 1 = INR 0.0085 approx.}

    Honourable mentions go to both Bhutan and Nepal, where us lucky Indians don’t need a visa at all. What are you waiting for? Start planning!


    It is generally cheaper to take an indirect flight to Bangkok, with a stop on the way. There are plenty of trains, planes and buses that go to Laos from Bangkok.
