Now no more waiting for an official "approval" to travel to Kerala. A big relief.

I have two queries.

Do we still need a TN transit pass to travel from Bangalore to Kerala? I applied yesterday and is showing pending after 1 day. I do have another 2 days to travel and I hope it will be done by the.

Do we need to apply for a pass in Karnataka while going to Kerala? It is not a short term travel

Got our quarantine completion certificates over the weekend. You receive an sms with a link to download each individual’s certificate, sent to the number you provided on the covid19jagratha portal. Surprisingly, my wife’s quarantine completion date was one day after mine, must be an administrative mix-up. The certificate clearly mentions a further 14 day observation period during which you are advised to undertake only necessary travel.

To come from Bangalore to Kerala, all you need is a valid KL pass for all the passengers in the car. There is a checking point before Hosur where they will sign and stamp your KL pass. That will be enough till Walayar where they will give you another pass after checking your temperature and noting entry into the state. The quarantine officers will call you the next day after you clear Walayar.

My TN pass was rejected on the morning of travel and I drove to KL with only a valid KL pass.

Does the Karnataka Sunday lockdown affect highway travel? Are people travelling interstate with a valid pass allowed to take the road on Sunday?

This question is even more relevant for folks travelling via Muthanga or Majeswaram from Bangalore as there is a long distance to be covered on KA roads.

Looks like it does affect travel plans:

Our TN pass also got approved and we travelled on Thursday. TN pass was inspected and stamped at Hosur, there were police checks at few places in TN where we had to show the pass. I am not sure if having the pass made it any easier.

Can someone advise me, my sister and brother in law (senior citizens) have booked a taxi and arranged all passes to come to Trichur from Bangalore on 14th/July (Tuesday), and it appears there is lock down from that day. Will this lock down effect their travel plans, viz. can they leave the state that day, as it will be difficult to get all passes changed to Monday.

Date of the pass doesn't matter. They are not particular about the date at check post. Just need to have that registration done. But expect long queues at check post.

And lock down starts from 8pm only, Tuesday.

Hi friends,

Hope you and your near and dear ones are keeping well in these tough times!!

Need some advice on how to manage the below travel from Bangalore to Kerala and return on the same day.

My wife is expecting and need to drop her to Palakkad (her hometown in Kerala) for the rest of her maternity period. Planning to drive down sometime early Sept (date not yet fixed). My parents will accompany us in the drive.

The plan is to drive until Walayar check-post and have someone from my wife's family pick her up from Walayar check-post to her home so that we can return back to Bangalore the same day and home quarantine ourselves in Bangalore (not sure if its mandated).

I suppose TN transit pass for 4 travelers and 1 KL entry pass for my wife should be sufficient. Will we need a KA entry pass if the return is within the same day?

Maybe rules may change by then, but if the current rule prevails, is the above assumption valid?

Thanks

Stay safe!!

Too early to think about the plan. More than a month and half to go, the rules will certainly change by then.

Note that if you have to take this up in the present condition, you are effectively travelling to TN and coming back, so you need a TN one day pass (not transit) for rest of them except your wife.

Kind of a late update. With the current situation with frequent changes, not sure if this will be of much use.

However, a friend of mine did Bangalore - TVM on 2nd July. Started from Bangalore around 4.30AM and reached TVM around 06.30PM.

He did only two quick stops apart from those at check-posts enroute, to have packed food he was carrying.

He mentioned that there were around 15 check-posts in total, mostly in TN. There was no major delay at any check-posts and unlike in earlier reports, there was a barricade put up near the check-post personal. One has to go near the barricade and display the pass.

Only the TN check-post near KL border, he had to give all details of his.

He had taken TN transit pass, even-though there was a mention that it was not mandatory.

Re-check the details entered in your application, i faced a similar issue when i applied for the normal entry pass, i entered the wrong division/ward number. The request got routed to the wrong person, who, understandably, did not have the time to call and ask me. I called on the local helpline number when i saw the same status for a number of days, and they helped me out, the request was approved the same day. Also, the helpline numbers mentioned on the portal are invariably busy. Try to get someone based in your destination to contact the local health worker of your ward/division, who in turn will have multiple numbers for the district helpline/control room. It is also usually this health worker who usually logs in and approves your request if it falls in their jurisdiction.
