Foreign tourists can apply for RAP & PAP online to visit Sikkim from October

Foreign tourists visiting the Himalayan state of Sikkim can now apply for Restricted Area Permit (RAP) and Protected Area Permit (PAP) online from October this year, an official said, reports PTI.

From the upcoming tourist season in October foreigners can apply online through a dedicated website for the Restrict Area Permit and Protected Area Permit, the official said, adding that work for development of the dedicated website is on.

To visit Sikkim foreigners must obtain RAP previously known as InnerLine Permit from Sikkim Tourism Officers on the strength of valid Indian Visa.

Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang in his Independence Day speech had announced about the online application for RAP and PAP for foreign tourists.

The Travel Agents Association of Sikkim (TAAS) has thanked the Chief Minister for announcing the online application for RAP and PAP for foreign tourists. This was an age old demand of TAAS. (Source: PTI)
