In a bid to revive tourism and breathe life into economies that are severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, countries around the world have started to gradually open up their borders to visitors. As India is among the worst hit countries, most nations have closed their borders to Indian tourists. But, after being cooped up in our houses for almost two years, the itch to travel is real. And even though a few European countries have opened their borders for Indian tourists, travelling to those far-off lands still seem like a distant dream.
Also, chances are that your favourite or bucket list countries may not be allowing Indians just yet, which leaves you with limited options to choose from. However, there are a few Asian countries that have waived off stringent rules and are welcoming travellers from India. Take a look.
This Asian destination was the most welcoming country for Indian tourists last year right after the lockdown was lifted. Remember how every Bollywood celebrity flocked to this gorgeous island country during the pandemic? It was only during the second wave of COVID-19 when the country closed its borders to Indians. However, they have lifted the tourist ban from South Asian countries, including India, from July 15. However, you do need to carry a negative RT-PCR test.

K-Drama lovers who have been swooning over South Korean food, tourist attractions and have added this beautiful Asian country to their bucket list already, you now have a reason to rejoice! South Korea has waived off the mandatory 14-day quarantine for all tourists vaccinated with Covishield. If you’re vaccinated with Covaxin, you can’t skip the quarantine.
They are welcoming all vaccinated foreign travellers and have reduced the mandatory quarantine period from 21 to seven days. You also need to carry a negative RT-PCR test report.
Owing to the rising cases in India, the Bangladesh government had extended the ban on travel through land ports to India till June 14. However, it has finally opened its borders for people from neighbouring countries seeking employment opportunities.
