Covid travel updates for Uttarakhand

Is Uttarakhand open for tourists?

What are the rules for tourists wanting to visit Uttarakhand?

Are these questions on your mind? You’re at the right place, we have simplified the guidelines for you, and have listed the important links. Read along.

“Land of the Gods” or “Dev Bhoomi” has also opened its arms for tourists. Uttarakhand has seen an increase in number of COVID-19 cases in the last one month or so, but has decided that it is time to open the borders, and hence also help the state’s tourism industry.

The regulations are in place as expected, but they are little more relaxed as compared to other states who have opened up for tourists. So, let’s look at the details.

As expected, a negative COVID-19 report is what the state asks for, but it’s not a compulsion. Hold your happiness, let’s get into the details.  Let’s look at the two scenarios – first where you have a negative COVID-19 resport, and second where you don’t.

Important update – Uttarakhand has enforced a local lockdown in Uttarakhand, and noone from outside the state is allowed to enter over the weekend, that is Saturday and Sunday. So no e-pass will be issued for these two days of the week. Plan your dates accordingly. 

Scenario #1 – You have a negative COVID report with you.

Requirements:

  • A negative Covid-19 report, which is issued not earlier than 72 hours (from an authorized and ICMR recognized lab)
  • You will have to register yourself on smart city web portal prior to your travel. Here is the link – http://smartcitydehradun.uk.gov.in/

What can you do:

  • You can visit all public places and destinations across Uttarakhand without any restrictions

Scenario #2 – You DO NOT have a negative COVID report with you.

Requirements:

  • You will have to register yourself on smart city web portal prior to your travel. Here is the link – http://smartcitydehradun.uk.gov.in/
  • Important to note that you will have to be asymptomatic at the time or entry into the state.

What can you do:

  • You can enter the state but should have a minimum booking for 7 days in a hotel. You will have to stay within the premises of the same hotel for 7 days, post that you can visit the public places across state.

Online registration – how to do it?

  • There is the link to the main state portal – http://smartcitydehradun.uk.gov.in/
  • However, to simplify the navigation for you, here is the direct link to the online form that you will have to eventually fill – http://dsclservices.org.in/apply.php
  • You will have to define your purpose of visit. Once you select “Tourism”, you will have to specify if you have a negative Covid report with you, or you will be staying for minimum 7 days in the state.
  • Your personal details and address proof will have to be submitted.
  • All destinations details have to be mentioned – place you will be going to in Uttarakhand.
  • Your vehicle details and co-passenger details have to be entered.
  • All hotel booking details.

These are the documents you will have to upload:

  • Address proof
  • Hotel booking receipt
  • Covid-19 negative report (if available)

Don’t forget to carry a copy of all the document with you, as they will be checked as you enter the state.

Important

  • Char Dhaam yatra is only open for local tourists, not open for anyone from outside the state.
  • If you’re planning to visit Mussoorie, there is an additional clause. Even if you have a negative test report with you, you will still need to have a minimum 7 days hotel booking to enter.
  • Also, no entry after 10 PM and before 7 AM would be allowed in Mussoorie.
