Kerala’s tourism economy, which contributes to near 10% of states GDP, has been almost nil with onset of COIVD-19 pandemic for about six months.

However, the Kerala state administration wants to fully utilise the November-December-January month period, considered to be peak season for tourism in the state to bounce back on track.

Meanwhile, there are certain conditions in place for domestic tourists who want to stay in Kerala for more than a week.

“There would be no process of quarantine for domestic tourists who want to stay in the state for 7-days. However, those who want to be in the state for more than a week can bring in COVID negative certificate along and continue to be so,” said the Director, Kerala Tourism.

“We are hoping for an excellent tourism experience for tourists with utmost safety in place,” added Mr. Bala Kiran.
