For Foreigners and Non Resident Indians, PIO and OCI Card Holders:
Guests holding foreign country’s passport, PIO card or OCI holders have to get an RAP (Restricted Area Permit) issued from the Airport on arrival. Copies of the Passport with the Visa, or PIO card or OCI card with the RAP have to be submitted and guests have to fill their personal details before check-in at all our hotels and resorts.
The Restricted Area Permit is verified while checking into a hotel or a ferry, and needs to be surrendered as you leave the islands. Remember that you keep it safe till the end of your journey.
The islands are safe to roam around and enjoy the place due to low crime rate; however, this is the natural dwelling for many snakes, crocodiles, and poisonous animals which may pose a hazard, if you happen to travel in dense areas. Keep an eye as you hike deep into the forests.
Consider having a local guide with you, just to ensure that you return back during day light. In all circumstances, ensure that you carry your footwear, sunglasses, sunscreen, umbrella and insect repellent along. This will rule out any minor problems that you may face due to intense heat or the mosquitoes in certain areas.
Avoid the heavy tides and high currents while swimming. It is recommended not to swim at all after consuming alcohol. Likewise, the night swim is to be avoided, especially after a meal. Check the depth of water if you can, before taking the kids along.
Andaman are very safe islands, and the records of thefts are rare in the region. However, it is always wise to be careful with your personal belongings.
