Foreign Tourist are no longer required to obtain any permit before visiting Nagaland. This was done to promote tourism to the North East and permit requirements were relaxed for foreigners.

As per the official website, Foreign tourists as of January 1, 2011 no longer require a Restricted Area Permit (RAP) / Protected Area Permit (PAP) to enter Nagaland. Previously, tourists were required to travel in a minimum group of four people. They were allowed to visit all 11 district headquarters and specified places with this permit, valid for 10 days, with an option to extend for up to a month.

The new rules only require foreigners to register themselves at the local Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO) of the district they visit within 24 hours of their arrival. However, the the citizens of Pakistan, Bangladesh and China still need to apply for PAP/ RAP from Home Ministry to visit Nagaland. This is a temporary change in effect for one year. The RAP/PAP application process is included below for those tourists who may still be affected by the previous rules.

    Is there any other way to obtain ILP for Mizoram and Nagaland other than the above methods? For example can we get ILP from any hotels, online or any other way?

    Thank you

      Hi, if you are travelling via any Travel agency, they may help you with getting the ILP. If you are travelling via Guwahati, obtaining ILP at Guwahati is the easiest option.
