It won’t be that simple though. We are entering in a world where the Coronavirus, or COVID-19 is a reality and living without it is not an option, as of now. There are the guidelines and regulations in place for anyone planning to visit Goa. We have simplified the procedure for you below.
Step #1 – A hotel pre-booking is mandatory to enter Goa. Only hotels with the highest safety and hygiene standards are open.
Select your hotel from the list. If you’re not sure which beach in Goa will be best to stay, give us a shout out and we will help you out. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +91-9958813763. You can also live chat with us.
Step #2 – Fill up a self-declaration form. This is not a prerequisite, and the form will be available at the pre-booked accommodation unit.
Step #3 – This the most important part – requirement to quarantine upon arrival?
Here you have two options:
Option A – carry a Covid-19 negative certificate issued in last 48h (in this case, no extra test needed in Goa).
This is the simplest option, and the recommended one.
Options B – get tested in Goa, at your own cost, at state entry point.
How it will work:
Your swab sample will be collected at the state entry point.
Go to your accommodation for check-in. You will stay in isolation until the result comes. Your result will come after 1 or 2 days.
If your result is negative, you can stay Goa.
If positive, you will go to institutional quarantine.
Go to the tourism kiosk at respective entry point. All tourists will undergo a basic screening through a thermal Gun.
Get your mandatory documents checked at the tourism kiosk – Hotel booking confirmation (refer to the open hotels list above), self-declaration form (will be available at the kiosk, Covid-19 negative certificate (if available).
In case you don’t have the Covid-19 negative certificate, your swab will be collected here and you will follow the guidelines listed above.
Goa is ready for you! Be careful, follow the guidelines, and stay safe!
