India announces new rules for arriving passengers starting January 11


DUBAI – The Indian government on Monday (January 10) announced that tighter restrictions will be imposed on arriving international travelers starting on January 11.

All arriving passengers will have to undergo quarantine, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

Those found negative of Covid-19 will be asked to undergo home quarantine for one week. Those who test positive for Covid-19 will be sent for institutional quarantine.

Two per cent of all arrivals will continue to be selected for random testing at airports. All others will have to take an RT-PCR test on the eighth day of arrival in India after completing one week of quarantine.

The results of these tests will have to be uploaded on a government portal and will be monitored by local governments where they reside.

Children under five years old are exempted from testing, unless they show symptoms of Covid-19. ICA/Expat Media
