Surprised by the omission of Pakistan. Huge population and a border nation. Despite the issues between the two countries, I figured that enough would visit to make the list.

Sri Lankan here. Sri Lankans love to go to India so they can do shopping there. Also Tamils don't have a language barrier to worry about when going there on holiday.

Of the Punjabis I know (both sides), very few have been to the other country, even if they live as close as Lahore or Amritsar. It's not easy for either to cross.

Indian here. Its very difficult for a Pakistani to get an Indian Visa (and vice versa). The ones which are issued are generally diplomatic visas and visas to medical tourists. Those also require a formal request from the government of Pakistan to govt. of India. The only other way to visit the other country is if someone from that country sponsors you. Then too you can visit a restricted area (for eg. a city only). Also failing to report to a police station every time you move from one area to other can land you in trouble.

I mean, the first thing I typed in was Bangladesh. I didn't realize I had spelt it wrong, and went the whole quiz thinking who on Earth would visit India more than the USA other than Bangladesh.

I was surprised at the numbers from Bangladesh. Are these visitors tourists or business visitors or people shopping or working in India?

Take a detailed look at the Bangladesh/India border. It's so convoluted in places that you can walk a straight line for a mile and cross the border 4 or 5 times.

Also just in general, it's common for Bangladeshis to go to India for medical purposes, business, tourism, etc.

Nope. I bet Nepalis would be first or second in numbers, but there's no visa requirement. It's an open border. Nepalis go to India all the time -- to work, to shop, to visit temples. By "shop," I mean daily, if you live on the border. India has cheaper everything, basically - from women's clothes to food to essentials like rice cookers. So for the millions of Nepalis who live by the border, it's like going to Walmart LOL. Nepal also has a larger population than Sri Lanka. (Nepal = 30 million, of whom around 1.5 million work in India; Sri Lanka = 21 million.) I'm sure it's just that Nepalis wouldn't be captured by statistics because there's no visa requirement.

It's not (directly, at least) about being British (or former British colonies). It's about the Indian diaspora.
