In an attempt to kickstart tourism in Arunachal Pradesh, the administration has announced the opening of its borders for travelers.
According to a notification issued by the Arunachal Pradesh government, travelers who have received two doses of the authorized COVID-19 vaccination will be permitted to enter the state.
There has also been an order passed that the issuing of Inner Line Permit (ILP)/ Protected Area Permit and/or Restricted Area Permit will resume with immediate effect under current laws and regulations.
Inner Line Permit is an official travel pass provided to the Indian nationals, who wish to visit restricted/protected regions or states such as Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, and Mizoram for a short length of time.
Similarly, the Foreigner (Protected area) Act requires foreign travelers to get a Protected Area Permit (PAP) before visiting specified areas of India, including Arunachal Pradesh.
