Due to the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, the Himachal Pradesh govt has made online registration mandatory for the people visiting Himachal Pradesh.

However, the state govt has exempted certain categories of people from the provisions of this order.
They include daily or weekend commuters such as “industrialists, traders, suppliers, factory workers, project proponents, service providers, government officials and people visiting the state on medical grounds”.
“Children below 18 years of age, if accompanied by parents or guardians with vaccination certificate for both doses or negative RTPCR/RAT reports too are exempted from e-registration,” he added.
Similarly, all goods carriers, whether loaded or unloaded and movement of goods or cargo for inland and exports are also exempted from any type of Covid restriction while entering or exiting the state, he added.
It is important to note that the state govt has made a negative COVID-19 report or full vaccination mandatory for all people intending to visit the hill state from August 13.
