The tourist visa restriction, which was relaxed on Monday, was introduced in November 2009 in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks.
In a statement issued yesterday, India’s Deputy High Commissioner to Malaysia Aseem R. Mahajan said the lastest measure would further ease the travel of Malaysians to India.
He added that all other procedures for the application of the Indian tourist visa remained unchanged.
Nationals of Afghanistan, China, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, Sudan, Bangladesh, foreigners of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origin and stateless persons would continue to come under the 60-day gap rule, he said.
