The Goa government will enact a night tourism policy to ensure foreign nationals are not given bar licences or permissions to operate businesses that comprise the state's fabled nightlife.
In a press statement, Goa Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar said the policy will be framed soon in consultation with Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.
"No foreigner will be given bar licences or be allowed to operate in the nightlife industry. Illegal activities like drugs and flesh trade in night clubs will not be tolerated," he said.
The 2019-20 tourism season in Goa is set to begin on October 4 with the arrival of a charter flight from Russia. The Royal flight from Moscow will have 224 passengers.
