Arunachal Pradesh Permits
Indian Nationals (Inner Line Permit) as well as Foreigners travelling to Arunachal Pradesh need a permit (PAP- Protected Area Permit) to travel and enter the state.
Indian tourists need an Inner Line Permit (ILP). This is available from any Government of Arunachal Pradesh office or by applying online at this website. You can also download an application form here. In addition, ILP Facilitation Centers were opened at Guwahati, Naharlagun and Gumto railway stations in March 2015. These centers issue ILPs on arrival.
Foreigners require a Protected Area Permit (PAP). The permit requirements were relaxed in 2008 and only two or more people need travel together (instead of four). However, according to a further government directive issued in 2014, single foreign tourists can now obtain PAPs to visit Tawang, Bomdila and Ziro. PAPs are available for a duration of 30 days (extensions are not possible) and cost $50 per person. In reality, the easiest way of getting the PAP is though a travel agent. It will take a couple of days to be issued. If you want to travel independently and do it yourself, the best places are the Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Resident Commissioner’s Office in Kolkata or Guwahati. These are the only two places that have authority to issue PAPs to independent foreign tourists and single tourists. In Guwahati, the office is located on G.S. Road. Applications can be submitted Monday to Friday, up until 2 p.m. Processing time is two to five working days. Download application form here.
