Nagaland Inner Line Permit Guide

While applying for Inner Line Permit (ILP) for Arunachal Pradesh, I had also applied for Nagaland Inner Line Permit as I wanted to visit Mon and Longwa and a little beyond that, during the Aaoling festival before heading to Basar for the Mopin festival this year (more on the festivals festival later). While I had wanted to apply the Arunachal Pradesh ILP offline because my travel plan in the state involved inter-district travel, for Nagaland I had planned to apply the ILP online as my plan here was pretty straightforward. But that was not to be.

How To Apply Inner Line Permit (ILP) For Nagaland

For easier segregation of the people visiting the state, the government of Nagaland issues Inner Line different categories. Here however, I will only be talking here about my experience in getting Nagaland ILP for tourists.

  • A passport photo with white background. – 2 copies.

What is the fee for Nagaland ILP?

  • The application fee, if you aplly at the Nagaland House, is Rs. 15/- .

How long does it take to get the ILP?

  • It takes one working day to get the permit in your hands. The permit application must be submitted before 12 PM.
  • The Nagaland House which issues the permit remains open on 1st and 3rd Saturdays.

Online ILP vs Offline ILP

Like I mentioned above, I had applied my ILP online. However, even after two days, there was no update on my application so I decided to call the Nagaland house only to find out that the Guwahati office does not process online applications. After which, I finally applied offline.

  1. Out of all the permits I had to get to explore North East Nagaland Inner Line permit was the easiest and the most ‘no fuss’ one! I had a hard time with the Nathula Pass permit. You blog would be so helpful to so many people! 🙂

    • There’s was the most ‘no frills’ procedure, yes. Too bad my plan had to be dropped at the last moment!

      I am so glad to know that you have been to Nagaland too. Where all have to been in the state?

      • I had gone there back in 6th grade, had a relative staying in Tuli. Had visited Kohima Tuli and Mokokchung area and Dimapur and some tribal villages around the area – don’t remember the names anymore.

    • I hope you make it soon 🙂
