The participation aims to promote ‘Incredible India’ as a ‘365-days-a-year’ tourist destination, and to showcase various regions, destinations, and activities for holidaymakers. The stall was inaugurated by Indian ambassador Dr Deepak Mittal.
Indian participation assumes larger significance as Indian tourist visas are set to open from November 15, 2021 and the first 500,000 tourists will be issued visas free of charge.
India is fully prepared to welcome back tourists, with all key stakeholders in the tourism sector fully-vaccinated and robust protocols put in place. India has done extremely well with the vaccination programme with more than 1bn doses administered.
Visitors can find more details on ‘Incredible India’ at the India Stall, Booth C82, inside the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre until November 11.
