Any incoming international tourist might have to show their Covid-19 vaccination certificate, undergo a quarantine period, or face rejection, which will depend on how they treat Indian tourists visiting their country.

With India ready to resume travel for international tourists, the government has decided to go for 'reciprocal treatment' to foreign applicants under new visa conditions. According to the reports, visa facilitation would now be determined by the applicant's home country's policy toward Indian tourists.

According to a senior official of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), a meeting was recently conducted to alleviate any tensions and concerns arising from the current travel situation, which was chaired by the Union Home Secretary and attended by representatives of all concerned agencies.
