Travel insurance isn’t technically required to enter India, but there’s still value in purchasing a policy. Travel insurance could help you recoup lost travel expenses if you suddenly have to cancel or interrupt your trip. Should you need medical attention during your vacation, travel insurance can reimburse the cost of your medical bills if you were sick or injured. 

Also, since the U.S. is still requiring international travelers show proof of a negative COVID-19, having a travel insurance policy in place could provide reimbursement of extra costs if you contracted COVID-19 during your trip, causing you to stay in India longer.
