Central American country El Salvador or the Republic of El Salvador is known as the 'Land Of Volcanoes'. Apart from this, the country is known for its natural beauty, scenic beaches and for its diverse culture. Many tourists visit this beautiful country from different parts of the world. But recently, El Salvador imposed ₹1 lakh entry fee on Indian tourists and more than 50 African nations.
El Salvador wanted to restrict migration through the country to the United States as during the fiscal year 2023, the US Customs and Border Patrol witnessed a high number of migrants with 3.2 million.
The country's government find this a crucial method to address challenges related to migration and so that they can curb the number of travellers passing through the country and entering the United States. The step is seen as a border and immigration control measure.
The money collected through these entry fees will be used to improve infrastructure and other facilities at El Salvador's primary international airport.
