Passport ranks passports of all 199 countries and India is increasing high on the list.
In 2015, Indian passport was on 77th position and in four years, it reached on 68. Last year the rank was 68.
25 countries across the world now allow Indians passport holders visa-free entry and 39 countries offer visa-on-arrival.
According to reports of TOI, countries are opening up for Indian tourists because they increase the tourism economy. Indian tourists travel across the world in large number.
Karan Anand, head of relationships at Cox & Kings Ltd told business daily, “One of the reasons for this improvement is that foreign governments don’t view Indian travellers with suspicion and welcome Indian tourists. They are of the opinion that Indians who come to their country do so for leisure or business and return home.”
“The main reason behind the increasing acceptance of Indian tourists is that the Indian government has opened its arms to foreign tourists over the last five years”
If we talk about other Asian countries, Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka are at lower positions than India.
