“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.
A negative Covid-19 report, which is issued not earlier than 72 hours (from an authorized and ICMR recognized lab)
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.
