Last week, India announced a phased resumption of tourist visas for foreigners. Those arriving on charters flights will be given tourist visas from 15th October and others arriving on non-charter flights can get tourist visas from 15th November.
This decision by the Ministry of Home Affairs is also expected to pave the way for a resumption of regular, scheduled flights and boost seat use of domestic flights.
