International tourists might be able to travel to India by as early as October 15 and an announcement regarding thiswould possibly be made by the Central government shortly, said the Union Minister of State for Tourism ShripadNaik.
“As the pandemic decreases, we will start national and international tourism. The announcement will be made soon and there is a possibility of it beginning after October 15,” said Naik. “International flights have started and we have requested for charter flights to resume by a particular date so that people can book trips to India and nowhere else,” he added.
International charter flights comprise a bulk of the foreign tourist footfalls to Goa. Earlier this month, Goa Chief Minister PramodSawantforwarded a petition made by the travel and tourism industry stakeholders to the Union Home Affairs Ministry for grant permissions to international charter flights at the earliest.
