Lockdown: 317 Stranded tourists evacuated from Goa on special flight

Panaji: Goa International Airport tweets on Tuesday reports 317 Germans and European passengers were evacuated from Goa. 

Earlier Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said nearly 1,600 foreigners stranded in Goa due to 21day countrywide lockdown. 

He also said that more special flights were headed for Goa for evacuation of more stranded foreign tourists on April 3 and 4.

The Goa government has set up nine camps across the state where foreigners and migrant workers have been put up and provided food. Several hundred foreigners are also putting up in clusters in beach villages like Arambol, Morjim, etc, as well as in hotels awaiting exit.

The Goa Foreigners Regional Registration Office has also announced safe passage to foreigners stuck in Goa from their place of residence to the airport at their time of exit from the country.

Until now, more than 670 foreigner nationals, mostly from the UK and France have been evacuated by special flights, ever since India suspended international commercial flights in the wake of the COVID-19 emergency.
