7 Days Home Quarantine Mandatory for all overseas travelers in India, iiQ8 info
RT-PCR test must on eighth day to be monitored by State govts; visitors from ‘at risk’ countries still need RT-PCR test on arrival
All international travelers will have to undergo a seven-day home quarantine on their arrival in India with effect from January 11, according to the government’s latest guidelines.
Such passengers will have to undertake an RT-PCR test on the eighth day after arrival in India and upload their result on the Air Suvidha portal. State governments will be required to monitor the test results.
If passengers test negative on the eighth day, they will self-monitor their health for next seven days.
“If travellers under home quarantine or self-health monitoring, develop signs and symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19 on re-testing, they will immediately self-isolate and report to their nearest health facility or call National helpline number (1075)/ State Helpline Number,” according to the protocols.

Earlier, only passengers arriving from countries identified as “at-risk” had to undergo a seven-day home quarantine. Passengers from at-risk countries will continue to require a post-arrival COVID-19 test at the airport, wait for their result before leaving the airport or taking a connecting flight.
All countries in Europe and 18 other countries have been identified as at-risk. These include South Africa, Brazil and Botswana, China, Ghana, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Hong Kong, Israel, Congo, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, Zambia.
