India will resume receiving tourists from October 15, which was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic in March last year, but so far, you can only visit the country on charter flights.
International and domestic passenger flights in India have been suspended since the end of March 2020. In mid-July last year, the Indian Aviation Ministry approved the launch of the “air bubbles” program. In the air bubbles scheme, international flights within the framework of agreements between the two countries, allowing airlines of both countries to make a specified number of flights between selected cities.
India has already concluded such agreements with 28 states. From October 15, foreigners arriving on charter flights can visit the country, and from November 15 – tourists arriving on flights “other than charters”.
As noted in the clarification of the new entry rules, travellers will be issued single-entry ordinary and electronic tourist visas for 30 days, and they will be able to enter only by air or sea.
