India to reopen for tourists Monday as it eases COVID restrictions

Good news for the hospitality sector comes as infections fall, vaccination picks up

NEW DELHI -- India is reopening to foreign tourists starting Nov. 15, more than one and a half years after it suspended issuance of visas due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The move -- which is expected to give a boost to the country's COVID-battered hospitality industry -- comes as the coronavirus situation in India has improved significantly, with daily new COVID-19 cases remaining below 20,000 per day for over a month after passing 400,000 per day in early May.
