starting this thread for Indian passport holders!

as much as I would love to do an on-the-spur of the moment overland backpack trip from london to singapore or seoul, the reality that we need to get visas before for each country on the way kills that dream in its infancy :lol: heres an attempt to list some countries for Indian passport that waive the need for a visa..(yeah right :) to ones that give a visa-on-arrival...or the ones with some easier requirements..

visa free:
nepal


visa-on-arrival:
cyprus
seychelles
thailand [land based as well]
cambodia [land based as well]
laos
maurities
maldives
sri lanka


please add to the above list (or correct them based on your experience)

cheers!

I am not too sure about the difference between visa free and visa on arrival... I went to Macau, where they stamped my passport just like they did in Hongkong, for a one month valid stay with no extra payment made. For HK it was 14 days, again with no payment made. Hence, I am not too sure which category it would fall under.

There are a number of countries in the world for which Indians do not need a visa to travel to. Depending in which you are resident there are some more such visa free countries.
The site www.visas4indians.com provides a list of visa free countries for Indians resident in UK but this information mostly holds good for Indians resident elsewhere as well.
www.visas4indians.com provides information on visa free travel countries, visa processing times, embassy information, application fees, document requirements and more.
