Covid-19 Policy Update

India Covid-19 Updates


No Covid-19 Vaccine Required to Travel

The Government of India has relaxed all Covid-19 related travel restrictions for all travelers who are asymptomatic upon arrival. The CDC no longer requires air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight. International airlines, and particularly non-US carriers, have adjusted their Covid test policies similarly. Therefore, we are happy to announce that proof of a Covid-19 vaccine is no longer required to join this tour. You are free to travel.
