Dataset shared through the Open Knowledge network

1 This dataset provides information on the number of visas issued by the government of India under the e-visa (formerly tourist visa on arrival) programme. Information is gathered from the press releases issued by the government of India on a monthly basis. The reference URL link shall take you to the original press release.

2 The dataset is a joint effort by Natasha Agarwal and Magnus Lodefalk and is a by-product of their initiative on understanding India's visa program.

3 Since the dataset is available for free, all we would ask you to is reference us while using the same. Reference should be "Agarwal, Natasha (2016). Dataset on India's visa program and foreign tourist arrivals in India.

4 All the errors are our own and if you do find discrepancies or errors, please do contact us at agarwana3@gmail.com

5 The dataset is an ongoing effort and hence we update the dataset as and when there is a press release every month.

6 Variable name "visa isused" in the data sheet refers to "the number of e-visas issued by the government of India"

7 korea refers to the republic of korea (south korea), and russia refers to the russian federation.

9 We have given the ISO Code for ``Others" as "OTH" as there doesn't exist an official code.

10 Annual/yearly data is from January through December.
