After a long time, India is now again allowing the entry of people from other countries. It was all closed because of COVID-19. Yes, there will be a lot of things that our government will be taking care of to ensure that the people who are coming here are not carrying the virus and they are also safe while they are in our country. The risk is there and it will stay for some time now, so the government needs to take many precautions in order to keep the country safe. There are many countries that have been affected badly by the virus and our government is making plans on how and from where they will be accepting Indian visa applications.
Allowing Business And Tourist Visa Applications
Our government has finally started accepting business and tourist visas from people residing outside the country. All the applications will be reviewed carefully and only when the government is sure that they are healthy and are not carrying the virus, they will be allowed. The Indian visa online application process will be online and the final consultation might also be virtual. These things will make sure that people stay inside their houses. This will allow people to apply for their visas from their homes. There are many other things that are being done to make sure that right from filling the application to them coming to the country, everything is safe. The world is scared, our officials are also scared but taking precautions is the only thing that can help everyone handle the situation better.
Everything needs to be restarted because the economies are crashing. Tourism and business are two activities that have kept our country economically strong and keeping these two on hold will bring a great amount of losses. This is the reason why the government has decided to finally restart allowing people into the country.
Tourism Industry Facing Great Loss
India has been one of the most popular tourist destinations for people abroad but because of the pandemic, it was closed for them. The borders are still not completely open but the government has decided to accept applications for tourist visas in order to restart international tourism as it has been down for 3 months.
There will be some people who might oppose this decision because this might bring the virus into the country. The important thing to consider here is that only a limited number of tourists will be allowed and they will all be tested for the virus and quarantined for at least 15 days before they will be allowed to roam. They will also have to maintain the social distance, considering that they might have a guide with them.
A Decision To Restart The International Tourism And Business Relations
This is a decision to restart international tourism and business relations as they fuel our economy. The government and a lot of tourism companies sustain a lot of international tourists, they buy a lot of things and pay way more than local tourists. Business relations have to be restarted too. This is, in a way, a good decision that might again give some strength to the economy.
