Visa on Arrival: 5 top destinations for last-minute plans

One essential step when travelling abroad is securing a visa, though the process can be quite long and strenuous. But on the bright side, there are many countries which provide visa on arrival to Indians. These countries also happen to be the most beautiful and exciting places on earth.

Sri Lanka

Our neighbour, Sri Lanka, is an enchanting destination with scenic locations scattered across the island nation. Explore charismatic Colombo on a city tour or explore its charming past at the colonial city of Galle and ancient capital, Anuradhapura.  Wildlife enthusiasts shouldn’t miss a visit to the Yala national park and the Pinnawala elephant orphanage.

Thailand

Already one of the most popular holiday spots in the world, visa on arrival in Thailand just gives another strong reason to make it your next holiday destination. Shop and bargain to your heart’s content in Bangkok. Experience the spiritual tranquility of Buddhist temples. If trekking’s on your plan, elephants would love to keep you company at the Chiang Dao elephant camp. And it would be criminal to not mention the island paradises of Phuket and Krabi. These picture-perfect locations attract tourists like magnets.

Indonesia

There’s something for everyone here.  While the temples in Bali will introduce you to the Far East’s fascinating vision of the epic Ramayana, your hankering for adventure can be satisfied by sports like scuba diving, surfing and snorkeling.

Samoa

A paradise that is safe, sweet and accessible for its visitors, there’s a lot to choose from when in Samoa. You can check out the beaches and nightlife in Apia. Or head to Manono Island to try your hand at adventure sports.

St. Lucia

Home to volcanic beaches, coral reefs, fishing villages and untouched rainforests, St. Lucia gives numerous reasons that can make it your ideal Caribbean vacation destination. While the northern part of the island offers modern comforts amid a beautiful bay, the south is a gorgeous region of old plantations, hidden beaches and the impossibly photogenic Pitons Mountains.

“While these locations are our top picks when it comes to destinations that provide visa on arrival, there are plenty more on the list,” says Viren Batra, co-founder of Nirvana Excursions. “Bolivia, Burundi, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Guinea, Guyana, Jordan, Kenya, Madagascar, Maldives, Seychelles, Tanzania, to name a few.”
