"Indian Passport Holders Can Travel to 59 Countries Without a Visa." Not.

Tripoto

The internet is buzzing with the apparent new discovered privileges of holding an Indian passport. 

The list is of countries which are part of the United Nations AND territories which are either conflicted or exist in isolation from major governance.

The viral list states that, "The country list is based on the 193 members of United Nations and other six territories which belong to other countries." Lies. Few countries don't even have the visa-free/visa-on-arrival policy for Indians.

I hate to burst the bubble but many of those countries actually provide visa on arrival. So basically, the websites have been click-baiting you with their false (not TOO false) titles.

And few of the territories that you can go to, and are on the 'viral' list include Palestine and Somaliland. Perfect tourist destinations right?

So here is the actual list of countries where you can visit without a visa.

Bhutan

Dominica

El Salvador

Fiji

Grenade

Haiti

Jamaica

Jeju Province (South Korea)

Mauritius

Micronesia

Nepal

Saint Kitts and Nevis

Saint Vincent & Nevis

Saint Vincent & the Grenadines

Svalbard

Trinidad and Tobago

Vanuatu

Countries which are either restricted zones or don't have United Nations members, but allow Indians without a visa.

Honk Kong 

Kish Island

Macau

Palestine (just in case)

British Virgin Islands

Montserrat

Cook Islands

Pitcairn Islands

Northern Cyprus

Belovezhskaya Puschcha National Park

Svalbard

And here is the list where you get visa on arrival.

Wrongly mentioned countries in the list circulating internet, because they sure as hell want Indians to claim a visa before visiting.

Hi Sreshti, after Modi's visit to Indonesia last year, no visa is needed for Indians who wish to travel upto 30 days. Seychelles too, doesn't demand visa fee for Indians. Just go to the immigration counter and get your passport stamped for entry.
