Messe Berlin

To mark the holding of Pride Week, seven days of events against homophobia and transphobia and the upcoming 37th Christopher Street Day, Messe Berlin is sending out a clear message in support of respect and tolerance.

Promoting India with online applications and Visa on Arrival


The features now being used by India to attract more foreign visitors include online visa applications and the slogan “The Guest is God”. Citizens of 44 countries, including Germany, can already benefit from this easing of entry formalities. It is possible that the service will be extended this year to include travellers from 150 countries. Those who make use of this service and who also pay their visa fee online then only have to provide a fingerprint on arrival in order to obtain the necessary stamp in their passports.
