Greetings from Pacific Mussoorie!
As the state of Uttarakhand lifts all travel restrictions, Pacific Mussoorie is geared up to welcome you to the Queen of the Hills! The Uttarakhand Government has published guidelines for tourists traveling to the state. Guests visiting Uttarakhand from outside the state have to follow the following procedures:
Travelers entering Uttarakhand who are fully vaccinated (two doses) with the second dose having been taken 15 days prior to travel can enter the state without requiring an RT-PCR negative test report or Rapid Antigen Test. Travelers are, however, required to register on the Dehradun Smartcity website https://www.dsclservices.org.in/apply.php and take a printout of the E-pass. You will also be required to upload the hotel voucher and mention the hotel address in the E-pass.
Travelers who are not fully vaccinated are required to get an RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen Test done no more than 72 hours prior to travel and to carry the same with you along with the hotel voucher and E-pass.
As per the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and WHO, we are strictly following the precautions and safety procedures to control COVID-19 and to offer you a safe and secure stay at our property.
