Goa to reopen for tourism with full vaccination of its population

Published on : Saturday, June 12, 2021

Goa Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar said that tourism activities should restart only after the entire population of the coastal state is completely vaccinated against Covid-19.


The Goa government has allowed hotels to function, along with restaurants and other tourism-related activities which were shut due to the curfew, when cases peaked in the state. The minister said that only tourists who are “fully vaccinated” should be allowed to enter the state.


“We can’t keep Goa’s tourism industry shut forever, as it is an important backbone of our state’s economy,” said minister Ajgaonkar.


The minister said that the tourism industry can recommence its activities once the entire population of the state is “fully vaccinated” with both doses of the vaccines. The state also needs to open itself for tourists with prudence, by permitting entry to only those visitors who have taken both doses of the Covid-19 vaccines.


“Once tourism resumes in Goa fully, the state will take up an intensive media campaign, inviting domestic tourists here,” minister Ajgaonkar said, and added that the industry will have to earn back its past glory, having suffered losses due to the pandemic.
