India announced on Thursday its decision to extend the eVisa facility to Cypriot passport holders for tourism purposes.

“In view of excellent, traditionally historic relations between India and Cyprus and the desire of both countries to promote tourism, people to people contacts and explore further opportunities, the Government of India has decided with immediate effect to extend eVisa to Cypriot passport holders for travel to India for tourism purposes,” an announcement by India’s High Commission in Cyprus says.

Among other eligibility criteria, the announcement notes that eVisa applies to international travellers whose sole objective of visiting India is recreation, sightseeing, casual visit to meet friends or relatives, short duration medical treatment or casual business visit.

Also, passports should have at least six months validity from the date of arrival in India and travellers should have a return ticket or onward journey ticket, with sufficient money to spend during their stay.
