India Suspends Visa On Arrival Facilities For South Korea And Japan Due To Coronavirus

The Indian Bureau of Immigration has confirmed that the visa on arrival facility has been temporarily suspended for the nationals of Japan and South Korea in light of the recent coronavirus outbreak in both the countries. 

The suspension of visa on arrival is a precautionary measure as the deadly virus continues to spread.  The number of positive cases of coronavirus has crossed 2,000 in South Korea. Early in February, the Indian government restricted the entry of people from China by suspending the e-visa facility for Chinese nationals. Pre-issued visas for Chinese nationals were also canceled by the government.
