India will extend visa-on arrival to tourists of 180 nations barring eight, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Iran, as it looks to boost tourism.

Planning Minister Rajeev Shukla said It will take 5-6 months for the respective departments to put the required infrastructure in place.

India currently offers visa-on-arrival to tourists from 11 countries like Finland, the Philippines, Singapore and Japan.

He said the only exception to this rule will be nationals from Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Somalia but did not provide any specific reasons.

Following a high-level meeting with representatives from various ministries, he said the electronic visa would be valid for 30 days from the date of the tourist's arrival in India.
