International passengers to undergo mandatory quarantine for one week
All International passengers will have to undergo a week of mandatory quarantine, a new order from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said on Friday.
The new order comes in the middle of bludgeoning Covid-19 cases in India, driven by a highly transmissible variant called Omicron that’s responsible for rising cases worldwide.
The new rules will be valid from January 11, the new order said.
The new order said travellers from specific “at-risk” countries must submit samples for Covid testing at the point of arrival. They will be allowed to leave the airport only after their test results are in, the new rules said.
