During his recent visit to the German travel show in Berlin, Tourism Minister Shri K. Chiranjeevi said that the recent decision of the Government of India to lift the restriction of the two month gap on re-entry of foreign nationals coming to India on a tourist visa will encourage more tourists to visit India.

India had made it very difficult for tourists who were visiting the entire region to use India as a hub for travel to other neighbouring countries. The Indian government ruled that once a tourist exited India they were not allowed to return until two months had elapsed.

With this change foreign tourists will be encouraged to once again make India their primary destination and their travel hub.
