• India Issued Revised Travel Guidelines for International Arrival, Check Here

      Digital Desk: India revised its international passenger travel guidelines on Thursday. According to the revised guidelines, the 14-day statutory quarantine has been eliminated in favour of a self-monitoring period for overseas passengers. "For the next 14 days after arrival, all travellers will self-monitor their health. Suppose travellers under self-health monitoring acquire signs and symptoms suggestive of covid-19. In that case, they should immediately self-isolate and report to their nearest health facility or call the national helpline number (1075)/ State Helpline Number." the revised order stated. The revised air travels rules are:
    • The order stated that international travellers coming by seaports/land ports would have to follow the same routine as above, except that online registration is unavailable for such passengers.
    • On arrival at seaports/land ports, such travellers shall submit the self-declaration form to the appropriate authorities of the government of India.
    • All overseas travellers will be subjected to thermal screening by health experts stationed at the airport. In addition, the online self-declaration form must be shown to the airport health officials.
    • According to health procedures, international travellers who are symptomatic during screening will be segregated and transported to a medical facility. If they are found to be positive, their contacts will be identified and addressed according to policy.
    • On arrival at the airport, a sub-section of the passengers (2 per cent of the total) will be subjected to random post-arrival testing. The aircraft responsible for each passenger must identify such passengers (ideally from different countries). They will submit the samples and will be allowed to release from the airport.
    • If such travellers test positive, their samples should be transferred to the INSACOG laboratory network for genomic testing. They will be treated/isolated in accordance with the established standard protocol.
    • Before boarding a journey to India, fill out a self-declaration form on the online Air Suvidha portal with complete and accurate information, including the latest 14 days' travel details. Take a printout of the completed online form as well.
    • Upload a covid-19 RT-PCR data that is negative or a comprehensive vaccination certificate. The test should have been completed within 72 hours of leaving for the trip.
