Punjab makes e-registration compulsory for travellers; know how to do it

The government of Punjab has made the process of e-registration compulsory for all travellers to/via the state, from July 6 midnight. The decision has been taken after Capt. Amarinder Singh, CM of Punjab, rejected the relaxation of the 14-day home isolation rule for Punjab-based entrants, considering the risk carried by those coming from high containment cities like Delhi/NCR.

According to the news reports, entrants to Punjab can self-register online from anywhere, on the basis of the guidelines issued by the state government, and thus enjoy a smooth journey.

Reportedly, the government of Punjab has issued strict advisory to everyone, entering the state via road or making a transit, to self-register either with the help of Cova app or by logging on to https://cova.punjab.gov.in/registration, before starting the trip.

The purpose behind e-registration is to make entry hassle-free for the travellers at the border checkpoints.

4. Click on the link to get the printout having QR code.

5. For those travelling through four or three-wheelers, put the printout on the left side of your vehicle’s windscreen or keep it on the dashboard.

6. The authorities will scan the QR code on the printout at the border check-point.

7. They will also perform thermal and medical screening of the entrants.

8. Once the medical screening is done, the passenger will be allowed to go if there are no COVID-19 symptoms. However, in case the passenger shows any symptoms, he/she will be guided by the medical staff deployed at the border checkpoint.

Reportedly, asymptomatic passengers entering Punjab will have to undergo self-quarantine in their homes for 14 days. During this period, they will have to give their daily medical report by either calling 112 or via Cova app. On the other hand, symptomatic passengers will be given appropriate instructions at the check-point.

The authorities will be using real-time alert system to share information with the police about the arrival or transit of every person into Punjab’s borders. The police stations of the state would also keep a tab via technical or physical resources on the entrants at their provided addresses for their own safety as well as the safety of the residents of Punjab.
