Mizoram is gradually becoming a popular tourist spot because of its natural beauty, pleasant weather and extremely hospitable people. Hundreds of Indian and foreign tourists visit Mizoram every year. On 28th March 2017, Mizoram Tourism Minister John Rotluangliana informed the state assembly that 770 foreign tourists visited the state in nine months from April 2016 to January 2017.
Recently, in a significant move, the Union Home Ministry allowed the foreigners, except those from Pakistan, China and Afghanistan, to visit Nagaland, Mizoram and Manipur without any permit.
It is hoped that the appointment of Jeje Lalpekhlua as Brand Ambassador has come at a right time and will boost tourism in Mizoram.
