Quarantine Rules for Overseas Visitors Are Being Relaxed in India
For international passengers traveling from specific countries, the Indian government has decided to reduce quarantine requirements. On Wednesday, India’s health ministry announced new guidelines outlining quarantine requirements for overseas travelers from countries that have signed an agreement with India on mutual acceptance of immunisation certificates for nationally recognised or WHO-approved vaccines.
Foreigners from the specified nations arriving in India will be allowed to leave the airport and will be required to self-monitor their health for 14 days following their arrival, according to the new rules, which will take effect on October 25. According to the instructions, “fifteen days must have passed since the completion of the COVID-19 vaccine program.”
Passengers must also present a COVID-19 RT-PCR test result that is negative, and the test must have been performed within 72 hours of the journey.
