Has anyone had any experience with India's (newish) Visa-On-Arrival scheme (details here)?
I'm travelling on a New Zealand passport into Chennai (and meet the other requirements), and was thinking I would take advantage of the scheme. However, I could also apply for a visa in advance. However since I am resident in the UK, the waiting times are a bit longer and would run close to my departure date (plus I'd have to get photos taken and take time off work to queue up - the queue visible on street view is not encouraging).
So I am wondering if anyone has done the visa-on-arrival before and if they had any problems (like long waiting times, or refusal)? Also do they really need US dollars in cash for it, or can I pay on a credit card?
