Notably, this announcement has come at a time when the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has relaxed travel guidelines in view of the declining coronavirus infection in the country. Effective from February 14, the new guidelines include the removal of the demarcation of 'at-risk' countries. Moreover, the health ministry has replaced the 7-day home quarantine on arrival with 14 days of self-monitoring now.
As per the fresh SOP issued by the administration, passengers arriving in India are mandated to submit a self-declaration form on the Air Suvidha Portal before the start of their journey. Additionally, a valid negative RT-PCR report or a certificate of vaccination against COVID is also mandatory to submit before the scheduled travel.
