2960 stranded Tibetans reach back home post lockdown

Post the lock-down relaxation across the world, those stranded due to the lock-down are gradually finding their way back home. As per the latest updates received from the settlement offices across India, Nepal and Bhutan, a total of 2960 stranded Tibetans have reached their respective settlement.

Acting as per the directive by the Kashag, the settlement offices under Department of Home continue to serve those Tibetans in need for facilities varying from requiring assistance in procuring travel permits from the concerned offices to providing relief assistance to those who have been hit hard by the pandemic.

As the COVID-19 cases continue to rise from day to day in India, the Tibetan settlement offices are executing the necessary preventive measures in compliance with the guidelines issued by the concerned state or district offices of their settlement to check the further spread of the virus within the settlements. The stranded Tibetans arriving back in the settlement are put under due examination in the quarantine centre before they are allowed to go back home.
