7 day home quarantine made compulsory for international arrivals, Covid test on 8th day

New Delhi: Amid the surge in Covid cases, the Indian Government has issued the revised travel guidelines enforcing all international arrivals in India to observe mandatory 7 days home quarantine. The surging Covid-19 cases are believed to be fuelled by Omicron, the highly transmissible variant of Coronavirus.

All travellers coming to India are required to submit on the ‘Air Suvidha’ portal a self-declaration form and a negative RT-PCR report, not older than 72 hrs prior to undertaking the journey. Those who strictly follow the guidelines will only be allowed to board the flight to India.

Travellers from countries marked “at-risk” will have to submit samples for the Covid test at the point of arrival. Those who will test negative will be allowed to leave the premises with mandatory seven-day home isolation, and an RT-PCR on the eighth day. Anyone who tests positive will be shifted to an isolation facility and will be treated as per the standard protocol.

The newly issued regulations will apply to international travellers arriving through seaports and land ports too. But, rather than applying online, they will have to submit the self-declaration form to authorities on arrival.
