In a bid to strengthen the bond and open up more ways for Indian tourism, Prime Minister Modi announced 30-day free visa for Indonesian citizens post his official visit to Indonesia.
Making it hassle-free and little more convenient for the Indian expats residing in Indonesia as well, this new initiative is expected to encourage the Indians in Indonesia to go back to their roots and witness the charm of the new India.
As stated by the Prime Minister at the Jakarta Convention Centre, Modi said, “We will grant free-of-cost visa for citizens of Indonesia for travel of up to 30 days. Many of you may never have been to India. I invite you all to come to India for the Kumbh Mela in Prayag next year.”
