Also the reason why we stretched and completed the trip in 2 days (Tue 6:30 AM to Wed 11:00 PM) instead of the easier 3 days considering the distance involved.
Yes, the ideal is a three-day(time) drive. But the condition is different now. Since you have two of you driving, shouldn't have been an issue.

Did a drive between Bangalore and Jodhpur this week. As we were entering Ahmedabad at the end of NE1, we were pulled over for a roadside covid test at a tent set up in the side of the expressway. No explanations on how we would be out of the state in three hours helped. All cars,with no exceptions were pulled over. It definitely was anxiety inducing as we did not know this was part of the process and we definitely did not want to be institutionally quarantined so close to home in Rajasthan. At the end, the testing process was quick and we were on our way in ten minutes with a negative slip. The whole thing was unnecessary as this was the most crowded place we've been in months and the most likely place for us to catch the infection.

Are there any restrictions on driving through Gujrat/Maharashtra now ? If I want to drive from Rajasthan to Goa, will I require to quarantine in Maharashtra. I think Gujrat isn't required but I want to be sure. What if I want a one night halt in Mumbai, at a hotel or friends place ?

Is anyone here aware of the process for quarantine completion certificate in Kerala.
I know that it can be applied from the covid jagratha portal.

My questions are -
1. How long does it take to get the certificate?
2. When does the quarantine period start? The day of arrival or the next day?

Appreciate if people have gone through quarantine in Kerala can provide some answers.

I need to travel to Bengaluru from Chennai for a 2 day official trip. Planning to start on Sunday afternoon and reach by late evening. Finish work on Monday. Start from Bengaluru on Tuesday early morning and be back at Chennai by noon.

I know that I need epass to while I am returning. That is I need a TN epass when I am coming in from KA.

Do I need Epass to enter KA from TN? If so where do I apply. Google searches returned nothing.

No, there is no need for epass to enter KA. And there aren't any checks or stops.

I am planning to drive to Hosur from Pune. I was thinking I need e-pass to enter TN from KA. If you have already applied, can you share the e-pass application link please?

Also, do I need E-pass to enter KA from Maharashtra?

Note : I am travelling to Kerala , so enquired with authorities and this is what the info they shared.
1. By new order, the quarantine is for 7 days . You have to get it tested the 7th day after arrival and if tested negative , further 7 days quarantine is optional( health authorities recommendation) . If tested positive itís 14 days

2. The day of arrival

Yes, you need auto-approved TN e-Pass to enter Hosur/TN from KA (although no one checks in reality). Here is the link.

https://tnepass.tnega.org/

You don't need any ePass to enter or exit KA.

Uttarakhand lifts all travel restrictions and tourists will no longer need to produce Covid-negative certificates to travel to the state. They just need to register themselves on the web portal http://smartcitydehradun.uk.gov.in prior to their visit.

The checking might be random. I travelled from Bangalore to Kerala on Saturday. They were checking for ePass at Zuzuwadi check post early in the morning, around 6 ish.

Default Re: Interstate travel with the Covid-19 restrictions

Guys, I am planning a Pune to Kannur (Kerala) trip somewhere in the last week of October 2020. Has someone lately done this or a similar trip to Kerala from Pune or Maharashtra?

I wanted to know to the following. Any updates and route recommendations will be helpful....

- Do I need some pass or permit to commence an interstate travel from Pune?

- I am planning the route via Kholapur - Belgaum - Dharwad - Kumta - Mangalore - Kasargod. Would I require a pass to enter and drive through Karnataka?

- Will I still need an e-pass to enter Kerala or is it just the registration in the e-jagratha website?

- On the Mangalore - Kerala border, is there a mandatory testing going on these days, or is it pass through, just like the good old days?

- I am driving one stretch. Plan is to start from Pune at 2am and reach home by around 10pm. I would appreciate any route recommendations.
