Foreign tourists to be allowed in India soon

First 500,000 tourists visiting India will be issued a free visa.

The government of India has announced that the first 500,000 tourists visiting India will be issued a free visa. This decision was taken to boost tourism activities. Tourism is most likely to revive by the end of this year.

The tourism industry is in the process of revival because of the intense vaccination drive along with many new tourism projects. The tourism-related restrictions have been relaxed drastically in the past few months. Domestic tourism activities have also increased in many popular tourist destinations.

Also, the number of new Covid-19 cases has been declining significantly. This has resulted in overcrowding of domestic tourists in places like Shimla, Manali, and Uttarakhand. It seems that people are interested in going on a vacation. One major concern for all tourists is that of safety.

According to the officials of the Home Ministry, more details will be announced in the coming weeks. The free visas will be issued until 31st March 2022. The free visa initiative is introduced to revive the tourism of India.  The following news article from ‘Hindustan Times’ reports in detail about the recent announcement made by the government.
