However, due to the current pandemic situation- Covid-19 the Shrine Board has closed the offline Yatra ticket Counters. You can book your tickets now only by online method.

Important Instructions

  • Carry valid ID proofs used at the time of registration of Yatra Slip. 
  • Do not book Yatra Slips other than from the official website of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board. 
  • Vaishno Devi Yatra Slip/Parchi is completely free of cost. If anyone charges you money for the Yatra Slips, complain at the nearest Check Post. 
  • Yatra Slips once booked cannot be altered. It cannot be edited or changed in any way. 

Benefits of Online Yatra Parchi

There are many crucial benefits of Online Yatra Parchi Booking for Vaishno Devi. 
  • First of all, no requirement of waiting in a long queue for the Yatra Parchi/Slip. 
  • Online Vaishno Devi Yatra Parchi Registration can be done without any physical contact which is a good thing. 
  • Vaishno Devi Online Yatra Registration Slip helps the Shrine board to track and maintain the flow of sacred Yatra.

  • Yatra Parchi is also required for the Helicopter Booking for Vaishno Devi.

Online Yatra Parchi Valdity 

Online Yatra Parchi is valid up to the day you have booked it for. 

For example, if you have booked your Online Yatra Parchi for 20th Oct then it is legitly valid up to 21st October from the Katra Base to Ban Ganga Check Point.

However, I am positive that if you went on with your journey on 22nd October they might allow you to travel. But then you are completely on their mercy.

In such a case, if your online Yatra Parchi is expired or not valid then you can always register yourself at the offline Yatra Parchi Counter near the Karta Main Chowk considering the fact that offline service is available. 

Offline Yatra Parchi is not available nowadays since the Coronavirus. Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board has decided to register pilgrims only by online method with the daily cap of 15000 pilgrims.

Which Method is Best for You?

If you have carefully planned your journey and also you do not want to waste your time & wait in the long hectic queue then you should go for the Online Yatra Slip. 

However, if you have not planned your Yatra or the tickets are not available you can easily go for the offline method, then you have to book your tickets from Katra Shrine Board Counter.
