The Andaman archipelago impresses with the special beauty and richness of the marine world. This extraordinary land is located in the Bay of Bengal between India and Thailand.
The Andaman Islands became available for sporting sea fishing just a few years ago. Until now, some parts of the archipelago are considered a protected area. There is no commercial catch of fish! The waters of the archipelago are saturated with a rich variety of marine predators.

How to get there.
The most convenient way to get there from Kiev is offered by Air Arabia airline by transit flight through Sharjah to Mumbai and Chennai (India). Further flight from Chennai to the capital Andaman – Port Blair is carried out daily by several Indian airlines.
Visas and permits.
Since the Andaman Islands are the territory of India, Indian visa is required.
Since the islands are a state-protected territory, then, in addition to a visa, you must obtain a special entry permit. It can be obtained both in the consulate of the Republic of India along with the visa, which greatly increases the time of receipt of these documents, and directly upon arrival at Port Blair.
