Tourism activities re-open in Andaman & Nicobar Islands after three months
In Andaman and Nicobar Islands, all tourism activities have been re-opened after more than three months. Beaches, water sports activities, museums and boat riding are going to start again in the whole islands except Nicobar.
Accordingly, quarantine rules have also been relaxed for tourists or visitors coming to the islands from mainland. Now, tourists or visitors will only have to undergo quarantine at hotels till the availability of their RT-PCR report. For which free test will be conducted on arrival at Port Blair as before. Prior to this, a seven days mandatory home isolation was in force.
After being tested negative in Port Blair they may go ahead as per their plan. However, carrying valid negative RT-PCR report is required as earlier while boarding flight to Port Blair. The sample should have been collected within 48 hours from the inception of the journey.
The decision will prove a great relief for the islanders as many of them associated with tourism some or the other way. It is one of the major source of income in A&N islands. People were desperately waiting for reopening of tourism activities. The mundane roads of Port Blair will soon be flourished with tourists roaming around.
