No more mandatory home quarantine for international passengers from Feb 14

In its revised guidelines, the Ministry of Health has scrapped the mandatory seven-day home quarantine requirement effective February 14. As per the new guidelines, passengers are required to self-monitor their health for 14 days after arrival and isolate in case they develop symptoms of Covid-19.

All passengers will undergo thermal screening on arrival and be isolated at a medical facility if found symptomatic. If they test positive, their contacts will be identified as per protocol.

The ‘at-risk’ tag for countries has also been removed. Moreover, passengers from 82 countries are allowed to upload a certificate of full vaccination instead of a negative RT-PCR report obtained 72 hours prior to boarding. These countries include those which have an agreement with India on mutual recognition of vaccination certificates of nationally recognised or WHO-recognised vaccines or those which provide quarantine-free entry to Indians.
