India reopens for foreign tourists after 20 months due to Covid 19

The lowering of limitations sets the travel industry “in a very healthy position,” Rajni Hasija, director of tourism and marketing at the Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corp Ltd., stated. 

However, she added a word of forewarning. “The prospect of the third wave is still not entirely behind.”
