The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State Department eased government COVID-19 travel ratings for India and some other countries on Monday, March 28, 2022.

The CDC said it had changed its COVID-19 travel recommendation for India to “Level 1: Low” from “Level 3: High,” which urges unvaccinated Americans to avoid travel to those locations.

The CDC also lowered Chad, Guinea and Namibia to “Level 1.”

The State Department on Monday lowered its travel advisory for India to “Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution,” reflecting the lower COVID-19 risk, but also cited the risk of “crime and terrorism.”
