Amazon eBook formats are on this category, so do not expect to easily read them outside the Kindle Reader app.
Yes, indeed it looks that there is no way to install Kindle on Android tablet without account registration to Amazon.

Calibre and travelling out of GB means there must not be DRM anymore.

I don't dare to add these calibred ebooks to my account.

This process may or may not need file conversion, depending on the original file format and its support by the reader application you are using.
Apparently there indeed is no other way to go.

I am not aware of a simple method of directly importing your locally stored books into the Kindle Reader app. On my opinion, the easiest in this case would be to use some other Reader app.
But is it safe in any format, when DRM has been moved.


Thanks!
