Modi Govt introduces film visa to promote shooting in India
Narendra Modi government has for the first time introduced film visa for such crews and it could help to promote arrival of foreign film makers and production houses to India. It will be granted under the e-visa category. The step, cleared by the government recently, comes after months of work by information and broadcasting minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, who has been interacting with the MHA and the MEA for the creation of special visa category for foreign filmmakers. The maximum duration for the visa will be for one year with multiple entry facility, keeping in view the fact that the film production has many variables in its processes, sources added. A provision for extension of visa for up to one year has also been kept.
