Meghalaya, the north eastern state of India, is opening for tourists December 21 onwards.
Travellers would be in a structured manner keeping in mind the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Travellers need to download the Meghtourism app to register and complete the formalities, including a mandatory upload of a government photo ID.
Conrad Kongkal Sangma, the chief minister of Meghalaya, posted a Tweet on the announcement:
On the app, visitors need to provide a complete itinerary of their proposed visit and share details of confirmed bookings in hotels, guest houses, home stays for at least the first two nights.
Those staying with families or friends must share their host’s full address and contact details and a complete itinerary. This is mandatory for the generation of an e-invite.
The e-invite needs to be presented at the entry point along with a Covid-19 negative certificate.
