New Pointers issued by the federal government for Worldwide Arrivals
In the wake of the increasing coronavirus cases in the European regions, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has issued new guidelines for international arrivals.
According to the new guidelines, travelers arriving in India will not need to go through a 14-day quarantine if they show the negative Covid-19 test results obtained 72 hours before they arrived in India.
The circular from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said: “You should contact the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt. from India via affected airlines before they are allowed to take the trip on which they would comply with the decision of the relevant government agency to undergo facility / home quarantine / self-monitoring of their health for 14 days or as warranted. “
If a person requests exemptions from quarantine, they can submit a self-declaration form online or at least 72 hours before the planned trip and make a decision as soon as they arrive at the airport and check in at the respective health counter.
Anyone who was unable to undergo an RT-PCR test before departure and would like to apply for an exemption from institutional quarantine can use the facility at the airport and undergo the test. Currently, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Cochin are the airports where these tests are being conducted
If the person arriving at the airport has not received any RT-PCR test results 72 hours before departure and does not choose to have an RT-PCR test at the airport, they will inevitably have to undergo a 7-day institutional and 7-day quarantine .
Although these new regulations will be enacted by the central government, the state government may change the regulations and place additional restrictions on isolation and quarantine rules on passengers arriving from international locations.
