Can anyone who has experienced these comment on how the system is working.

Uk papers say that queues are as long as ever, unmanned desks, the usual India.

And the promised sim and CD?

Did I just see a big pink pig fly past?

Thanks

In September of 2015 in Mumbai, I was outnumbered four to one by the VOA staff. In February 2017 in Delhi, the four of us E-visa holders outnumbered the staff two to one. Its been a breeze each time. No photo of my eyeball the second time round, just matched a finger print and it was "Welcome to India". I'll stick with E-visas so long as i have a job to take vacations from.

Not so much as a hint of a free sim to be seen out side of the news reports though. The last I read on that before arriving was that the program was still pending.

The last report I had was that they sailed through and obtained a fully setup Sim card from B company. The hint was to look at an obscure booth to the right in a group of 2 ATMs and another kiosk or so. Reminds me of the bank at Dhaka arrival hall..
