IANS  |  New Delhi 

The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the liberalisation, simplification and rationalisation of the country's visa regime to stimulate economic growth and ease travel for foreigners.

The Cabinet meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"The Cabinet has given its approval for the liberalisation, simplification and rationalisation of the existing visa regime in India, and incremental changes in the visa policy decided by the Ministry of Home Affairs in consultation with various stakeholders and with the approval of the Home Minister," said an official statement.

The approval will facilitate entry of foreigners for tourism, business and medical purposes.

"This is expected to stimulate economic growth, increase earnings from export of services like tourism, medical tourism and travel on account of business and to make the government's Skill India, Digital India, Make in India and other such flagship initiatives successful," it added.
