So far I know those coming to Port Blair airport by a flight receives permit (for non-Indians) after arrival to P. Blair but what about the travelers coming at harbour by ship ? Can it be issued there at harbour or from Kolkata shipping office or at very beginning during visa process ?
I'm planning to make a trip to Andaman with a group of 2 families having 2 kids in each(age 5 and 12 yrs) . Would anybody pl help me give some ideas answering the following questions-

Weather of Andaman and nicobar in march,
suggestion for clothes,
Myself and wife want to visit Andaman in May to celebrate our anniversary. We want a nice recommendation for hotel and places so below questions so far:
1> Weather during May
If it is raining then I would prefer a really nice hotel recommendation - 4 stars or similar
If not then a convenient nice hotel would be good. 3 star or even lower
2> We are flexible in dates maybe 7 days. So should teh split be 5 days port blair, 2 days Havelock as most sites and packages are offering
3> Hotel recommendations in both places to book online
4> Travel within the islands - is it simple to arrange once there or booking a package is important?
Appreciate the help. We like becah side hotels if the weather is going to be sunny.
appreciate any help.
I am planning a visit to this beautiful island from Chennai. want to know the ship fare details and accomodation facilities.
I guess the first and most important thing is if the permit is still available on arrival? I am a lone male Canadian traveler wanting to go there during Chinese new year. Will i be able to get eth permit on arrive at the airport there or should it be arranged ahead of time? if can get it there, is there a delay period or same day?
I am also having trouble finding flights to this island. I Have been checking sites like but so far not having luck, makes em think i am getting the destination name wrong.
I am traveling from Taiwan and probabyl going to go to Kuala Lumpur as its the cheapest flight from here that can then go to many places. Not many cheap flights direct from Taiwan this time of year. But I am assuming that there are still only direct flights form India to these islands, right?
My maximum travel time form leaving and returning to Taiwan is Jan 21-29, so pretty short. My reason for going here is to photograph the plants and animals, especially geckos.
Thanks a lot for any current info :)
I will visit A&N on November. Could you reccomend me any budget hotel on Haveloc Island?

I will be visiting Port blair from 5th Oct to 12th Oct and staying at Bay Island Hotel.
Would like to know the following, is there any supermarkets near by this hotel to buy provisions. I do not want to carry heavy baggage while on travel, thinking of procuring whatever i need from local market.
This question has been asked previously but upto date information will be really useful. I am hoping to fly from either Kolkata or Chennai to Port Blair just before Christmas returning just after New Year, something like December 22nd to January 2nd. I have checked various sources for flights and cost seem to be in the region of £150 to £200 return including all taxes and charges if I book now from the UK.
My question is should I book now or will I be able to pick up cheaper flights in India, or in fact will the flights be really busy over Christmas and New Year?
I appreciate the helpful replies I received in response to my previous question. I am now wondering if anyone knows how long the permits are good for.
Is it necessary to have a special permit over and above an Indian Visa to visit the Andaman Islands.
Can anyone tell me if there is a Royal Thai embassy on either one of the Andaman or Nicobar Islands? I have been dreaming of this trip for a long time, got the visa for the islands now I only need to make sure I can get back to Koh Samui were I’m doing an Internship. For this I will need to renew my Non ED visa for Thailand and was hoping to do this on one of the islands or somewhere on my way to or from there.
Ps: any information on how to get there from Thailand and on were to find the best surf around half September would be greatly appreciated as well!!
Could someone tell us wat the weather could be like in july?
Should we expect a heavy moonsoon and a lot of mosquitos?
I will be visiting A&N with my Fiancee during end of June.
