While visitors from Indonesia were issued 2,426 VoAs, the figures for Singapore were 1,974, Finland 914, Vietnam 186, Cambodia 157, Luxembourg 110, Myanmar 109 and Laos 10.

Overall, 16,084 VoAs were issued during 2012 as compared to 12,761 in 2011, a jump of 26 percent, officials said.

During 2012, the highest number of VoAs were issued at Delhi airport (9,596), followed by Mumbai (3,276), Chennai (2,273) and Kolkata (939).
