Received a call today from Kannur collectorate. The caller enquired where I came from and do I have Negative test report. I said I have vaccination certificate. She said ok, and asked me to be careful for a week.

Default Re: Bangalore - Kannur : Route Queries

Has anyone travelled to BLR from Kannur in the last 3-4 days? There are three views around about documents required to travel back and checkings at Iritty/ Makkuta check post (near hotel Coorg gate) as below.

1. RTPCR
2. Both doses of vaccination certificate (no RTPCR required)
3. One dose of vaccination certificate (no RTPCR required)

It will be helpful to know which one of the above is fine to travel. As of now I have received only one dose vaccination and planning to drive back on a weekday this week.

Thanks
Aravind

As of now it is extremely messed up and there are mixed opinions. There are people who had travelled belonging to all the three categories that you listed.

While the latest government circular (above) mentions one dose of vaccine is enough, the authorities at the check post seems to be not agreeing with that and mandates RTPCR -ve report, not even 2 dose vaccinations would suffice as per them. And this is as per reports coming in as of yesterday. You can challenge them quoting the government order and showing it there.

And there are people who traveled with having only one dose vaccine certificate as well.

So, it is very un predictive at the moment so just watch out how things develop closer to your travel date. Will keep posted upon hearing any updates.

I travelled today towards Kerala. But I stopped at the check post and enquired on the status towards KA.

Yes. Either RTPCR -ve report or two dose vaccine certificate is needed. One dose is NOT enough. Double confirmed that 2 dose certificate is enough.

Last Saturday when I came in to KL, at Makkuutta, there were a few vehicles(8 to 10) queued up on the other side at KA checkpost for entry into KA. All of them were goods vans and trucks, didn't see any private car in the queue.

Towards KL side, there was no queue at all.

For road condition, please refer this post.

Towards KA: As mentioned in above post, the line is mostly of trucks and couple of cars probably hoping that they can get across without RTPCR. I do not understand how that is possible. If you have a certificate then do not have to go behind the queue, just overtake and reach to the check post, park, show the report and move on.

Towards KL: No traffic here except there is a bottle neck due to oncoming traffic. The actual checking towards KL is at Kiliyanthara check post which is after about 3 kms from here. And there too there would'nt be much traffic.

Here is a quick view of the scene there, captured yesterday, towards KL:

The make shift shelter on the left is where you need to produce the report. I stopped a little ahead just to come back and enquire on something.

I think the rush depends on the time you cross the check-post. Couple of weeks back, I had crossed the check-post to enter KA side and as it was a saturday and time was about 08:00 hrs, there were just 1-2 cars and with no trucks.

Any latest news on the travel restriction to Karnataka...Is RT PCR mandatory to travel to Bangalore via Makutta? or Two dose vaccine certificate is enough?...Did anyone recently travel? I am planning to travel this week.

Hope RT PCR is not mandatory to return back to Kannur. I will be returning after 3-4 weeks.

RTPCR is strictly checked at Makkutta to travel towards KA. Even double dose vaccination is not enough. Kids (<10yrs) are exempted though. And this is as of yesterday. Muthanga and Makkutta are probably the only interstate check post in the country where there is this checking still.

Nothing required to travel towards KL.

Seems like the Bus operators are using the Kanhangad/Sullia route to reach Bangalore and from the last one month RTPCR is not mandatory.

Yes, that is the route I too drive across. Being from North KL, that is anyways preferred one for me.
