The US administration is expected to impose additional travel restrictions on India starting May 4, 2021, in response to a significant outbreak of COVID-19, reported Reuters late on April 30, 2021.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced on April 19, 2021, 'travelers should avoid all travel to India. Because of the current situation in  India, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to India.'

'If you must travel to India, get fully vaccinated before travel. All travelers should wear a mask, stay 6 feet from others, avoid crowds, and wash their hands.'

In addition to the COVID-19 vaccination, the CDC says, 'Make sure you are up-to-date on all routine vaccines before visiting India. Some of these vaccines include Chickenpox, Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis, Influenza, Measles-Mumps-Rubella, and Polio.

These vaccines, in addition to travel vaccines, are available at most travel clinics in the USA.
