Everyone seems to be heading to the Maldives right now! The country has started a bubble with India after being shut off for tourists post COVID, and resorts are now welcoming tourists with a negative COVID certificate with open arms. You can book your vacation in a luxury all-inclusive resort and just relax in this little piece of heaven.
The country was completely cut off for tourists till November 2020, but has now opened borders for everyone with a negative COVID certificate to come in, but do a mandatory 14-day quarantine, which you can also pick in the luxuriest of beachside or poolside villas, converting the quarantine period into a honeymoon and then moving around the country later following another COVID test. And the best part? The country is COVID-free!
The island nation opened for tourists from October 2020 for those with a COVID-free certificate. Upon arriving in Seychelles, you must stay in a designated hotel/establishment and may not leave the premises for 5 days. Another COVID-19 test will be performed on the fifth day of your stay. Following a negative test result, visitors will be free to travel within Seychelles.
Yet another nation that has a bubble with India and a lot of other nations, Dubai is welcoming tourists with open arms like no other nation is. While they do require more frequent COVID tests from Indians, requiring tourists to wear a tracking wristband and quarantining for 14 days at a hotel. If you are negative, you can remove the wristband after 14 days and will be free to move around.
If you want a domestic honeymoon with the feel of an international destination, then Andamans is ideal right now. Flights to the island are open now and while you will have to undergo a COVID test and a 7 day home quarantine on arrival, but you can roam free after that in what are some of the most gorgeous beaches in India!
