Flying to India? New COVID-19 travel guidelines announced

Passengers flying to India without a COVID-19 RT-PCR negative certificate and seeking exemption from institutional quarantine may now undergo the RT-PCR test on arrival at the airport, according to new guidelines issued by Indian Government.

The new guidelines for international arrivals were announced by¬†India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Thursday (November 5), and supersedes the requirements stipulated on August 2.

The guidelines come in the wake of the ministry doing away with the need for quarantine, whether institutional or home, in cases that qualify, and provided passengers submit a COVID-19 negative certificate of the RT-PCR test conducted within 72 hours of embarking on their journey.
