Mangaluru: Mangaluru will be the second airport in State after Bengaluru to offer the E-VISA services. Foreign nationals entering India through Mangaluru International Airport can opt for the electronic visa (e-visa) facility from April 1.
Tourist, medical, and business visa holders can avail of the facility. The airport has created two exclusive counters for e-visa holding travellers at the terminal building as fingerprints of such travellers would have to be taken.
Immigration officials take three seconds to check a traditional visa. Separate counters for e-visa holders are required as it takes three to four minutes to check e-visa as the fingerprints of the passenger is required. Other passengers will then not have to wait for immigration clearance. If the travellers carried a printout of the e-visa, the clearance process becomes faster, rather than checking it on the smart phone.
Foreign nationals using e-visa and visiting this coastal belt arrive at Mumbai or Bengaluru international airports first, and then take domestic flights to Mangaluru. From next month, they can fly directly to Mangaluru.
