Now Foreign Travelers Have Access To India, But 'This' Is The Condition

Foreign passengers who are fully vaccinated will now be able to leave the airport premises and not go through home quarantine, as well as, testing October 25 onwards. This is based on the guidelines revised for international arrivals proclaimed on Wednesday, reported the PTI.

However, the travellers will need to produce a negative report of RT-PCR test conducted within 72 hours before boarding. Moreover, they also need to be fully vaccinated at least 15 days before arriving in India.

Though if the travellers aren’t vaccinated or just partially inoculated, they will be required to undertake steps that entail the submission of sample for the post-arrival coronavirus test at the arrival point. It is only after this that they will be permitted to leave the airport. 

In addition to this, they will also have to home quarantine for a period of seven days and re-test on the eighth day of arriving in the country. If they test negative, they will have to self-monitor their health for the next seven days.

The ministry also added that according to the risk assessment, the document will be reviewed accordingly.

According to the ministry, India has signed agreements for mutual recognition of nationally or WHO recognised COVID-19 vaccines with 11 countries - the UK, France, Germany, Nepal, Belarus, Lebanon, Armenia, Ukraine, Belgium, Hungary and Serbia.
