India Reopens Doors For Foreign Tourists After 20 Months

New Delhi: Foreign tourists who wish to visit India can finally do so after 20 months as India opens its borders to mass foreign tourism.

After halting the tourist visas in March 2020, India has now allowed entry without quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers from 99 reciprocating countries. The government has advised the travellers to keep a watch on their health for 14 days on arrival.

In view of the COVID-19, India had suspended all visas granted to foreign travellers in 2020. Besides that, the country also imposed several other restrictions on international travel. The restrictions included limiting the number of flights and constituting special ‘air bubble’ arrangements with countries with favourable travel situations.

However, with the gradual improvement in the pandemic situation, travellers from foreign countries were later allowed to avail of any other kind of Indian visa, barring a tourist visa, to facilitate entry and stay in India.
