As India expands its “Visa on Arrival” program, the VoA booths in the Immigration areas of international airports in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Goa and several other cities in India may confuse some arriving air travelers. 

Only citizens of 11 countries currently qualify for the VoA program: Cambodia, Finland, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Luxembourg, Myanmar, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam.
