The Union Government has designated Krishnapatnam Port in Andhra Pradesh as an authorised immigration check post for entry into and exit from India. Krishnapatnam, promoted by Navayuga Group, is a privately built all-weather, deep-water port in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.

According to a home ministry notification, international travellers henceforth can use the port for entry into and exit from India with valid travel documents for all classes of passengers. The notification was issued as per the Passport (Entry into India) Rules, 1950.

The move is expected to boost cruise ships travelling to Andhra Pradesh, a home ministry official said.

Krishnapatnam is also expected to becoming the largest automated port for exports and imports in South Asia.

It rates high on all the parameters of operations, including optimum cost, reliability, time and the best available service to customers, the official said.
