“The MIA has created two exclusive counters for e-visa holding travellers at the terminal building as fingerprints of such travellers would have to be taken,” said director of MIA, J T Radhakrishna, in conversation with The Times of India.
A large number of foreigners with tourist, medical and business visa holders will benefit from this new facility. Earlier, people had to visit Delhi or Mumbai airport for immigration clearance.
Mangalore airport handles more than 40 international flights. The flights are being operated to Dubai, Dammam, Doha, Bahrain, Kuwait, Muscat and Abu Dhabi.
Apart from MIA, Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport offer e-visa.
