Inter-ministerial talks underway for calibrated resumption of tourist visas

India could soon reopen its doors for foreign tourists from countries where Covid situation is under control, by following all required health protocols, reports Saurabh Sinha for TOI. Top government officials say inter-ministerial talks are currently on for a 'calibrated resumption of tourist visas on a country-specific basis." 

“The Union Home, External Affairs, Health, Aviation and Tourism ministries are having discussions to finalise the proposed calibrated reopening for tourist visa holders. While tourists only from certain countries are likely to be allowed initially, the protocol for those coming here is being worked out in terms of quarantine and other health requirements. We are mulling issues like whether those coming with a negative report (as per requirement) and proof of having received the required number of Covid vaccine jabs need to be quarantined; if yes, for how long; or not. Several such things are being discussed,” said a top official. (Source: TOI)
