The Union Health Ministry has amended the new guidelines for international travellers in India with effect from December 1.

Before travelling, a negative RT-PCR report will have to be uploaded on Air Suvidha Portal, and 14 days travel details will have to be submitted.

As per the Union Health Ministry new guidelines, passengers from ‘at risk countries’ will have to undergo a Covid test after arrival and wait for the result at the airport itself.

If the report is negative, then they will be home quarantined for seven days. There will be a re-test on the 8th day, and if negative, then self-monitor for the next seven days.

Passengers from countries other than ‘at risk countries’ will be allowed to leave the airport and self-monitor their health for 14 days.

One subdivision (5% of total flight passengers) will have to undergo COVID 19 test at random at the airport on arrival.
