• New Civil Aviation Policy to address issues of e-visas, regional connectivity

    The new civil aviation policy of the union government, which is quite on the cards, will address both the issues of opening up the skies and regional connectivity in a very aggressive and fulfilling manner, a top Tourism Ministry official said at an ASSOCHAM event held in New Delhi.

    “The new tourism policy, which is just a matter of time, is going to highlight and emphasise a lot on the possibility of increasing Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events (MICE) into India,” said Vinod Zutshi, secretary, Ministry of Tourism while inaugurating a “Thought Leadership Meet on MICE Tourism in India,” organised by ASSOCHAM.
    Talking about the e-visa for MICE, Zutshi, “We had a meeting with the Ministry of Home Affairs a few days ago, we insisted on MICE e-visa as well, we have been trying very hard for e-visa for MICE and medical and we are hopeful to have this e-visa to see the light of the day, particularly for business tourists to begin with but we are insisting that ultimately the conference visa should also be done, which we have been assured that it will be, step-by-step.”
