7-day home quarantine mandatory for all international arrivals in India, Covid test on 8th day

India made seven-day home quarantine mandatory for all international arrivals and RT-PCR test on the eighth day, as it issued revised guidelines for international travellers.

The new order comes in the wake of coronavirus cases rising across the world since the detection of the Omicron variant.

Previously, passengers arriving from countries designated as “at-risk” were required to submit a sample for COVID testing upon arrival and wait for their results at the airport before leaving or taking a connecting flight.

If the report comes negative, they will have to undergo home quarantine for seven days and then get an RT-PCR test done on the eighth day.
