Is it possible to travel in India during Covid 19

 

Airlines in India are back into action, as on May 25, the Indian Government allowed domestic airlines to resume operations across the country. As regarding international travel, we need to wait for some time as it is yet to get the green flag.

Now, the decision to travel during the pandemic is entirely your choice, along with your responsibility to ensure your personal safety. Some states have quarantine rules in place, which you also need to check before planning your travel. Further, you need to check if the state you are travelling to, is allowing flights from your state or not.
As India entered the Unlock 2.0 phase, more and more people are gearing up to embrace the new normal, and hence, venturing out to travel.

 

Standard operating procedure for tourism in India

 

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has brought the world to a standstill. This is an unprecedented global health emergency with tremendous impact on societies and livelihoods. Travel and Tourism is among the sectors most affected by this crisis but at the same time, Tourism can also be an integral part of the global recovery efforts.

In the COVID 19 aftermath, countries will need to realise a new reality of the tourism and travel industry and make all efforts to shape the sector accordingly. Tourism Businesses will require a re-thinking of how they will operate in terms of hygiene, health and safety to ensure safety of their clients and staff.

The Ministry of Tourism proposes to recommend Protocols covering all service providers and their related activities to tourism and hospitality sectors, to ensure a safe and prepared approach for a post-COVID 19 revival.


The protocols/guidelines are applicable to service providers engaged in management of both international and domestic tourists. These include, the following in the tourism supply chain:
• Travel Agents
• Tour Operators (Inbound, Domestic & Adventure)
• Tourist Transport Operators
• Tourist Facilitators / Guides

 

They have been prepared with primary focus on identifying and mitigating risks for the service provider and for ensuring necessary safety and hygiene practices in interaction with travelers. Minimizing all possible touch points by use of digital technology has been one of the guiding principles for the guidelines. This would not only help in reducing the risk but also make traceability of the guest easier in case a situation in future warrants so.

The protocols would include the requirements that each sub-sector or tourist activity would need to comply with in terms of health and hygiene. The same could be adapted by States/UTs based on their tourism products and service capacity.
