Armenia opening on-arrival visa options to Indian citizens

PanARMENIAN.Net - The citizens of India will be able to visit Armenia by obtaining visas on arrival, online or by applying to the country's diplomatic missions, a draft decision on the government's website reveals.

The number of Indian citizens who visited Armenia in the first nine months of 2017 grew 168% against the same period last year.

Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan was recently on an official visit to Delhi where he met Indian prime minister Narendra Modi to discuss centuries-old ties between the two nations, prospects to deepen cooperation and develop bilateral relations.
