    COVID-19 Update


      COVID-19 Update for India

      Foreign nationals are prohibited from entering India for tourism. This policy does not apply to Bhutanese and Nepalese nationals. Foreign nationals seeking to travel to India must hold a valid entry visa. All persons holding a previously-issued visa are advised to verify their visa status with a local Indian embassy or consulate prior to making travel arrangements. Persons seeking to travel to India for family emergencies should apply for authorization at an Indian embassy or consulate abroad, which will evaluate applications on a case-by-case basis.

      All persons (including Indian nationals and transit passengers) must use the “Air Suvidha” system to submit an online health declaration form and proof of a negative result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure using a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test. Travellers must further agree to abide by all regulations concerning quarantine and self-isolation issued by appropriate Indian government authorities. All persons must monitor their health status for 14 days following their arrival in India. Travellers arriving on flights originating in Europe (including the United Kingdom) or the Middle East must undergo testing for COVID-19 upon arrival. All persons travelling on flights originating in Brazil, South Africa, or the United Kingdom must self-isolate for 7 days, undergo an additional test for COVID-19 following the self-isolation period, and monitor their health status for a further 7 days. Persons who at any point test positive for COVID-19 will be isolated and sent for treatment. All persons are advised to install the “Aarogya Setu” mobile application for contact tracing purposes.

      Be advised, some state-level authorities in India have implemented additional policies and restrictions for persons arriving into their jurisdictions.
