Planning A Trip To Lakshadweep? Check Entry Permit Rules, How To Reach & More


New Delhi: Are you thinking about discovering the stunning beaches, green coconut trees, and amazing sea life in Lakshadweep? Well, these islands, easy to reach yet private, are calling you with their natural beauty. Located around 750 km from the Maldives in the Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep has certain rules for entry. If you’re not from here, be sure to get the required entry permit form from the right authority before you plan your trip to these beautiful islands.

Entry requirements and travel details to Lakshadweep

Tourists applying for an entry e-permit online through the Lakshadweep Administration portal should plan ahead, as the processing takes seven days, and the permit is valid for 30 days. Mentioning the planned islands to visit is essential.

While Lakshadweep boasts 36 atolls and coral reefs, only a few are inhabited, including Kadmat, Minicoy, Bangaram, Kavaratti, and Agatti. Government officials, armed forces members, and their families are exempt from the permit requirement.

The ideal time to visit Lakshadweep is from October to February when humidity is low, and sunshine enhances the sandy getaways.

For those wondering how to reach Lakshadweep, Kochi serves as the gateway, offering both flight and ship services. Agatti Island is the only one with an airstrip, and flights from Kochi take about one hour and thirty minutes. Boat rides to Kadmat and Kavaratti Islands are available from Agatti between October and May, with helicopter rides during the monsoon season, subject to availability.

Seven passenger ships – MV Kavaratti, MV Arabian Sea, MV Lakshadweep Sea, MV Lagoon, MV Corals, MV Amindivi, and MV Minicoy – operate from Kochi to the Lakshadweep Islands. The journey duration varies from 14 to 18 hours depending on the destination, offering different accommodation classes and onboard medical assistance for emergencies.
