Travel Restrictions across India

Omicron, the third variant of the Coronavirus, has infected a large chunk of the population. To ensure that it doesn't adversely affect the country, state governments of the country have instituted some travel restrictions to curb the spread of this virus.

COVID has constrained travel over the last two years, so travellers are eager to pack their bags and resume touring. Most of the populace has received at least one dose of the vaccine, and the government has advised people to take the second dose as soon as possible and follow COVID-appropriate behaviour during their travels.

Here, we outline the travel restrictions that are in place across Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, and the Golden Triangle - i.e Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
