Many people have already started planning for their vacations after the news of the opening of Goa, Himachal, and Uttarakhand. Tourists from all over India would be allowed to travel within these 3 states.
After the recently announced unlocking of the restrictions in these 3 states, a good number of tourists are expected to arrive in these destinations in the coming weeks. Many changes have been made in the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for monitoring and regulating the movement of people. These updated new guidelines have not yet been officially announced.
A report from ‘India.com’ gave a list of conditions that are required to be fulfilled by all citizens entering Himachal Pradesh. These conditions are as follows:
- A COVID negative report of the test done at least 72 hours ago.
- The minimum stay of 5 days is required by all visitors.
- Hotel booking should be done in advance.
- All visitors have to acquire an E-Pass after registration on the government portal (www.covid19epass.hp.gov.in).
Inter-State bus transportation has been suspended until further notice. Bus movement within the district borders is allowed.
Uttarakhand has started allowing local pilgrims to travel to the temples and take religious tours. Visitors from other states will not be allowed on these pilgrimages.
