The government on Thursday revised guidelines for international arrivals, removing the category of 'at risk' countries

According to the new guidelines, all foreign arrivals must fill a  self-declaration form online (available at the Air Suvidha web portal),  including a travel history of the past 14 days.

They must also upload a negative RT-PCR  test that was conducted within 72 hours of the travel date.

Alternatively, they can also upload a certificate confirming they have received both vaccine doses.(Option for only some countries)

Only asymptomatic passengers will be allowed to board, and Covid-appropriate behaviour must be followed during the flight.

On arrival, in addition to thermal screening, passengers selected at  random (up to two per cent of total passengers per flight) will be asked  to undergo RT-PCR tests

Passengers will be selected by the airline and must "preferably" be from different countries.

Passengers found to be symptomatic will be immediately quarantined and tested

All other passengers must self-monitor for 14 days for any Covid symptoms, the Health Ministry said.

The new guidelines will come into effect from Monday, February 14, the Union Health Ministry said.
