After 19 months of long suspension on international tourism, India is finally welcoming international tourists. Tourists from 99 countries are now allowed to travel to India. All the visiting tourists are required to be fully vaccinated to be able to travel to India. Also, there will be no quarantine for fully-vaccinated tourists. However, tourists will be asked to self-monitor themselves for 14 days and report any infection if needed.
India has also made the first 500,000 tourist visas free of cost for international tourists. This was one of the initiatives taken by the government to motivate tourists to travel to India. More details regarding the regular passenger flights will be announced soon.
If any tourist is partially vaccinated then they can submit a negative test report at the airport upon arrival. Chartered flights are already scheduled to arrive in Goa next month and more tourists are expected to visit India by the end of this year.
Following is the report from ‘Free Press Journal’ reporting about the recent announcement regarding the arrival of international tourists.
