Visa issues dampening tourism prospects in Goa: TTAG

China Tourism Visa 

Panaji, Oct 1 (PTI) Complex visa issues seem to be working as a dampener for the tourism industry in Goa, which is expecting to get over the three-year-long slump during this tourist season.

Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG) spokesman Ralf De Souza said that many foreigners find it 'problematic' to get visas to India. "Government gives short term visas which are discouraging. Many travellers have been knocked out from their Goa trip due to this rule," he said. De Souza said that the visa validity for three months has reduced the number of visitors, who were eager to stay in Goa for a longer period. "There are people who used to spend their entire winter in Goa but now they have to go back after visa expires and return after a two month cooling period," he said. TTAG, representing state's tourism industry, has said that several petitions to the Union and State government have yielded no response.

 The tourism industry feels that Chartered flight arrivals this year will help tourism boom by at least 15 per cent and help the sector get over the three-year-old slump, which was a result of the global financial meltdown. "The arrivals could have gone up by almost 10 per cent more than what we are predicting, if long term visas were given," De Souza said.
