We are helping people with a valid COVID-19 travel pass undertake necessary travels during the COVID outbreak. We are grateful to our warriors, our drivers, who are willing to get on the road to help people reach their destination safe and sound.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The new guidelines enforced as a part of Lockdown 5.0 have been released. The government has imposed this lockdown phase until June 30. However, unlike the other COVID triggered nation-wide lockdowns, this will bring in relaxation of the rules imposed in all the previous lockdowns. Hence, the name Unlock 1.0.

4. What is a COVID travel pass?
A COVID pass is a bonafide government-issued document that will enable citizens to legally travel from one place to another. A pass is not a right. It can only be granted by the government or local authorities to citizens to allow movement of a few exceptional cases across and within states.
5. Who can apply for a travel pass?
Lockdown 5.0 has lifted many conditions or restrictions on travel. Now anyone who has to travel to the states mentioned above can apply for an e-pass online. The movement e-pass will contain your name, address, validity and a QR code.
6. What do you need in order to apply for an E-travel pass?
In order to apply for a travel pass, one must have a valid government-issued id (Aadhar Card, Pan Card, Passport Number, Driver’s License). In some states, a vehicle number is also a prerequisite to apply for a travel pass. For those availing Savaari’s car rental services, vehicle number can be obtained by responding to us on your booking confirmation mail.
7. How long does it take to get a travel pass?
Because there is no uniform process as it varies from state to state, it is best to start your COVID travel pass application as soon as possible. It takes a minimum of 24 hrs to secure a pass.
8. How to check the status of your COVID-19 travel pass?
You should be able to check the status on the same website that you have used to apply for the pass. We will highly recommend you note down any ID/confirmation number provided after you have submitted the pass request and pay special attention to what they tell you on how/when you would know about your pass issuance.
9. How long is the pass valid for?
Every pass that has been issued by the government will be valid for a round trip or a one-way drop. The pass is issued for one-time use only.
10. How do you communicate your pass details to Savaari?
You are required to take a picture or screenshot of your pass and send it after the confirmation mail is sent to you. You are also expected to carry a hard copy of your pass when you are traveling with Savaari.
