I’m very grateful for having been born and brought up in a beautiful and diverse country like India. I also consider myself lucky to be traveling at all and exploring these beautiful destinations. But the travel fanatic in me wishes my Indian passport was more reaching than just 52 countries without visa or visa on arrival =) My wife has a US passport (172 countries) so unfortunately our trips have to be planned based on the limitations of my passport and the visa application process for the countries we plan on visiting. But hey, although it’s work to apply for visas it’s not impossible to travel to most countries.

During our trip planning phase, I had a frustrating time finding resources for Indian passport holders so I decided to put this together. Hope this page helps you out with your travel planning! Please note, this is just a reference and by no means comprehensive or the latest. Please cross check with the respective embassies on the requirements before making your travel plans.
