India reopens to fully vaccinated international travellers from 99 countries
After shutting its borders to international visitors for 20 months due to the pandemic, India will now allow fully vaccinated foreign travellers from a list of nearly 100 countries to enter without the need to quarantine. In guidelines updated last week, India said travellers arriving from these 99 countries will be allowed to skip a post-arrival Covid test, but must monitor their health for the next 14 days — even if the country they are coming from is deemed “at-risk,” CNBC reported.
India opened its borders to fully vaccinated foreign tourists entering the country on commercial flights on Monday. Tourists entering the country must be fully vaccinated, test negative for the virus within 72 hours of their flight and follow all Covid-19 protocols, according to the health ministry. Travellers who are partially or not vaccinated will have to submit a sample for a Covid-19 test at the airport. They will then be allowed to leave the airport and are required to quarantine at home for a week. On the eighth day, they will be required to take another test, and if negative, continue to monitor their health for another week, CNN wrote.
List of the countries for which India lifted travel restrictions:
- Antigua & Barbuda
- Commonwealth of Dominica
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
- Kyrgyz Republic
- San Marino
- Sierra Leone
- Slovak Republic
- South Sudan
- Sri Lanka
- State of Palestine
- The Bahamas
- The United Kingdom

To be clear, those arriving from countries that are not considered at risk can also skip quarantine, but need to self-monitor for 14 days.
