However, passengers shall be exempted from home quarantine in below cases:

> Passengers who are able to produce a COVID-19 negative certificate issued by an ICMR-recognized lab, which shouldn’t be older than 48 hours prior to the arrival in Goa.

> Passengers who opt for a swab test upon arrival priced at Rs.2000, and agree to remain in paid institutional/home quarantine till the test results are available.

Guidelines for tourists:

> Pre-booking of accommodation (hotels registered with the Department of tourism) is mandatory. Proof of pre-booking for the entire duration of stay will be checked at the entry points.

> All tourists will have to undergo basic screening at the entry point. Any tourist exhibiting sickness or COVID-19 related symptoms upon arrival will be subjected to a COVID-19 test at designated testing centres/hospitals at the tourist’s cost.

> The Authorities will check (a) if the booking was made with any registered accommodation unit with the department of tourism and is permitted to operate and (b) validity of booking for the entire duration of stay.

We advise all travellers to carry a COVID-19 test report or opt for a test upon arrival in the state. However, if you want to opt for a 14-day home quarantine, please get in touch with the hotel in advance to find out if they allow guests without a COVID-19 test.
