Boosting tourism, foreign tourists will now be able to visit Andaman and Nicobar islands

New Delhi: Proving an ease of travelling, the foreign tourists are now allowed to visit Andaman and Nicobar Islands without any restrictions. The decision was taken by the Home Ministry with modifying its order for tourism in the tourist’s favorite island.

The home ministry has modified its earlier order which made it mandatory for them to register with the Foreigners Registration Officer within 24 hours of their arrival. The step was taken on the suggestion made by the tourism ministry to boost the foreign tourist arrivals in the Union Territory through an order.

This order follows an earlier directive which allowed foreigners to visit 29 inhabited and 11 uninhabited islands in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which were prohibited for visitors under the Foreigners (Restricted Area) Order, 1963, without any restrictions.

The Ministry of Tourism has also proposed that travel restrictions be removed from border areas in Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.
