Revised COVID-19 Protocols
After months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Meghalaya had announced the reopening of its tourism sector in the state starting from September 1, 2021. However, though life is getting back to the “new normal,” all travellers who wish to visit Meghalaya must adhere to the CONTACTLESS protocols to ensure a safe and comfortable visit.
To obtain permission to travel, tourists must use the Meghalaya Tourism App to register and an E-invite will be generated for the proposed itinerary. Please follow the instructions in the app to generate your e-Invite.
Once registration is completed, travellers will receive an E-Invite, a COVID-negative certificate or a full vaccination certificate should be presented at entry checkpoints.
Tourists can access tourist areas, food joints, cafes, restaurants, and bars only if they are fully vaccinated or have received their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine. The tourist attractions will continue to operate based on their carrying capacity restrictions and with the authorization of the respective Deputy Commissioners, or District’s/ Sub-divisions’ Sub-Divisional Officers.
Tourists are urged to follow all the safety measures and precautionary measures as well that have been outlined by the state government, especially to strictly register on the App of the Meghalaya Tourism, generate an e-invite, and adhere to the advisory for Homestays, BnBs, Hotels, Guest Houses, Tourist Sites, Restaurants, Cafes, Tourist Cabs and Taxis, etc., which remain operational.
Read the advisories for various protocols related to tourism, such as entry points, COVID-19 testing and reporting, hotel operations, and homestays and BnBs. These advisories were issued on different dates ranging from 2020 to 2021.
