IATO welcomes new MoHFW guidelines for international arrivals

Rajiv Mehra, President, Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO), thanked the Government for revising MoHFW guidelines and removing clause of 7 days quarantine for all nationals. Besides this relief, list of high risk countries has also been removed, which is good for us as there were some key source markets in the list of high risk countries. He also appealed that the guideline further be liberalised in next 10 days making it foreign tourist friendly.

Mehra thanked Arvind Singh, Secretary Tourism and the entire team in the Ministry for supporting the industry in getting the guidelines revised from MoHFW.

IATO has now reminded the concerned Ministries for resumption of normal schedule International Flight operations as per bilateral agreement which was in force before March 2020. “We hope this will also be resolved soon. Presently, there are only limited air bubble flights are operating to some selected countries and airfare are very high. Once normal international flight operation is resumed, airfares will come down drastically, and foreign tourists will start travelling to India,” pointed out Mehra. He is also hopeful that e-Visa restrictions will also be removed by this month end.
