Navratri and Dussehra have only just gone by but there is Diwali to look forward to. And that means long weekend travels await. Before you plan out your getaway, it might help to know the best places to travel hassle-free. Many states are welcoming fully vaccinated travelers, here’s a list of Indian states you can travel to without any tests or quarantine requirements.
If you are fully vaccinated, no RT-PCR test or quarantine in these states:
- Goa (passengers arriving from Kerala, however, will only be allowed to enter if they have a negative RT PCR test report taken within 72 hours prior to departure)
- Himachal Pradesh
- Karnataka (passengers from Maharashtra and Kerala will have to present a negative RT PCR test report taken within 72 hours prior to departure, irrespective of their vaccination status)
- Tamil Nadu (passengers flying in from Kerala will need to present a negative RT PCR report taken within 72 hours prior to departure; 7 days of home quarantine is mandatory for passengers from Kerala and Maharashtra)
- Uttar Pradesh
- West Bengal (passengers flying in from Mumbai, Pune and Chennai will need to present a negative RT-PCR test report taken within 72 hours prior to departure)
If you are partially vaccinated…
You can travel to Rajasthan minus the hassle of RT PCR tests or quarantine even if you have a single dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, if you are partially vaccinated and travelling to Nagaland, you can skip the pre-departure RT PCR test but you will need to undergo 7 days of home quarantine on arrival.
