E-registration for travellers to Punjab made mandatory

Punjab Land Pooling Policy

After Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh ruled out dilution of 14-day home quarantine norm for domestic entrants, in the light of the high risk posed by those coming from Delhi/NCR in particular, the process of e-registration for all travellers to the state has been made mandatory.

The travellers can self-register online from the comfort of their homes, as per the guidelines issued by the government, and ensure their hassle-free travel for themselves.

The state government has strongly advised road travellers entering or transiting through Punjab to self-register, either through COVA app or through a web link, https://cova.punjab.gov.in/registration, before embarking on the journey. The objective of e-registration is to avoid any inconvenience to the travellers due to crowding and long queues at the border checkpoints.
