You might hear a lot from a lot of people while traveling to a place but the best advice is to research everything yourself only from verified sources. 

Negative Coronavirus Report

People who are traveling to different places should do a mandatory covid test. The test should be done within 72 hours before the journey and the report needs to be negative. Even if you have been tested positive but asymptomatic, do not travel and stay quarantined for 14 days.

Keep the necessities with you

Once you step outside of your house, make sure to wear your mask till you reach your destination and enter your room. Also, carry a sanitizer always and keep sanitizing your hands after coming in touch with something. And also sanitize the places before sitting on them.

Do not carry unnecessary things/ luggage

You should wash and sanitize everything that you are taking with you for traveling. So do not carry unnecessary things as it will make your bags heavier and you need to wash them without even using them.

International tourists should be quarantined

International tourists should be quarantined for at least 7 days. After quarantining and following all the guidelines, they can start traveling wearing masks.
