Inner Line Permit
Inner Line Permit is an official travel document issued by the government of India to allow inward travel of an Indian citizen into a protected/restricted area for a limited period. It is obligatory for Indian citizens from outside those States to obtain permit for entering into the protected State. The document is an effort by the government to regulate movement to certain areas located near the international border of India. This is a security measure and it is applicable for the following States:
- Arunachal Pradesh — Issued by the secretary (political) of the government of Arunachal Pradesh. It is required for entering the Indian State of Arunachal Pradesh through any of the check gates across the inter-State border with Assam or Nagaland.
