As per the revised guidelines, passengers will now be given the option to quarantine at their homes instead of government facilities. Apart from this, all other mentioned guidelines stand unchanged and will have to be adhered to. Regardless of their origin, all international passengers landing in India will all have to follow a host of pre and post-arrival formalities and go through mandatory checks.

The carry-forward guidelines require the passengers to upload a self-declaration form on Air Suvidha, and a negative RT PCR test report taken within 72 hours, prior to the travel. All passengers, including those arriving from 'not at risk' countries will have to undergo thermal screening, whereas travelers from “at-risk” countries will additionally have to take a self-paid COVID test on arrival. These passengers are restricted from leaving or taking a connecting flight while awaiting the results of the test. Passengers testing negative will be required to quarantine for 7 days and upload the report of a re-test on the 8th day. Whereas passengers testing positive for the virus, will be given the option to isolate themselves at home as per standard protocol, and their samples will be sent for genome analysis.

Children below 5 years exempted from pre and post-arrival testing

Passengers sitting in close proximity with a covid positive passenger, i.e those seated in the same row, 3 rows in front and behind along with identified cabin crew, will also be ordered to home quarantine. Children under 5 years of age are exempted from both pre and post-arrival testing. However, if found symptomatic for COVID-19 on arrival, they shall undergo testing and be treated as per laid down protocol.

The relaxation offered to isolate at home will bring great relief to citizens. With mandatory government isolation out of the window now, the passengers have the option to recover at home and upload the COVID test result after seven days to the online portal.
