See the sights: It will be easier to visit India from October thanks to a government plan to issue visas on arrivalThe current visa process involves submitting an online form, sending your passport to the Indian High Commission along with photos and a pre-paid envelope for your documents to be returned. The visa itself costs £80 and there is a £12.20 handling fee.

The application can be so complicated that some tourists choose to pay companies to fill out their visa form on their behalf, costing around £45.

The new system will still involve a fee - although the amount is still unconfirmed - and tourists will be encouraged to visit an official website to apply and pay the charge before they fly. The visa will then be available for pick up at one of 26 major airports after three days.

Winter sun: The colourful coastal state of Goa is a particularly popular destination for British tourists

There are only 11 countries currently eligible for a visa on arrival, including Finland, Singapore and Japan. But with the extension of the scheme, most countries will be included except nationals from Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Somalia.

Winter sun: The colourful coastal state of Goa is a particularly popular destination for British touristsTourism Minister K Chiranjeevi said: 'This is a very good step. The visa-on-arrival for 180 countries will definitely boost the foreign tourist arrivals in the country.'

Planning Minister Rajeev Shukla confirmed that the government hopes to roll out the new visas by the beginning of October.

Western & Oriental’s Indian Subcontinent programme manager Jane Manzoni said: 'We’ve already had clients inquire about the new visa-on-arrival scheme for India so the evidence points to a real boost for tourism going forward.

'The impact could be two-fold – the current system with its fairly lengthy process puts people off travelling to India and although there are not-to-be missed highlights including cultural touring in Rajasthan and spa and beach holidays in Kerala, travellers tend to default to places with an instant visa process.

'And of course India will also become accessible to travellers looking for a last minute holiday getaway and to those who may not have considered travelling to India in the past.'

Helen Pink, Kuoni UK sales support executive addedL 'If the proposed electronic visa on arrival service in India is implemented later this year, it would significantly reduce the time it currently takes to process visa applications and give customers greater flexibility and the opportunity to book a last minute holiday.'

It will be midsummer there. There are beaches but nobody gives a crap about what you look like in a swimsuit. It is very relaxed and there is a lot to do.
You could do the Bay of Islands for beaches, sailing, big game fishing or scuba diving.
Or Auckland is good for a city vacation. City stuff, go to the museum and aquarium, go up the volcanoes, out on the ferries to the vineyards on Waiheke Island or the bird sanctuary on Tiritiri Island, out to the west coast side for big surf, scenery and solitude.
Rotorua/Waitomo Caves/Taupo loop for adventure sports and the geothermal tourism stuff, hiking, or trout fishing

I'd go for Peru, myself. Chile next. But definitely, need more details to give any helpful input. Argentina was less interesting to me than I expected -- I think Buenos Aires is probably pretty great if you want a city experience, but then I'm not sure how much there is for you outside of that. (Having said that, I haven't been to Bariloche, and would still plan to. But only as a side to a mostly-Chile expedition.) Costa Rica is great, but also has a seriously tourism-driven economy, and is really best if you want to do adventure tours/sports or just completely relax. Peru and Chile I like because there are just lots of options, at least as long as you don't crave a metropolis and want more culture, outdoors, whatever

Going to Peru? Ask a Native tour operator.

My family is from Cusco, Peru. (Your destination in order to visit Machu Pichu). I've lived in the SF Bay Area for fifteen years and I go to Peru at least once a year. This is my third year organising tours to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Because tourism is the main industry in Cusco most of my family and friends have been involved in tourism for many years. This gives me an insider look, and puts me in a great position to get the best values.
Cusco is one of my favorite travel destinations. There is something interesting for every body. Great history, magnificent architectural complexes, wonderful arts and crafts, beautiful music, exotic customs and traditions,unique scenery and wildlife, varied and exciting adventure sports, as well as a fun night life

    F1 is never going to come to india now
    indian government just said F1 is not a sport but is an entertainment and has no future here...
    they are not ready to spend a few hundred crore rupees (a few million dollars) as fees for organinzing F1 race to FIA...

    • I didn't think it would.So no big surprise there.
      I think there will be a resurrgence of a lot of the old circuits coming back onto the calender, one by one. Places in there past which have a genuine fan base which can be sustained.
