As novel coronavirus cases continue to decline in India, several Indian states are easing travel restrictions for inter-state travellers.

Previously, almost every state required travellers from other states to show negative RT-PCR test reports. Now some states are not asking for RT-PCR test, many others are allowing travellers to enter provided they are able to show proof of vaccination.

It may be noted that even these rules are not permanent, and tend to change after some time. Hence, we recommend that when planning your trip, make sure you check all the official guidelines to ensure that you are travelling with ease.

Andhra Pradesh: covid-19 test for passengers, thermal screening for all departing and incoming passengers at the discretion of health authorities.

Himachal Pradesh: Last month, the Himachal Pradesh government announced that inter-state travellers would not be required to show a negative RT-PCR test to enter the state. However, the state government has asked the hotels to ensure that the tourists strictly follow the covid-19 guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Department of Tourism.
