From next week, fully vaccinated Brits traveling to India will not need to take a pre-departure test or be quarantined at home upon arrival.
The modifications to the Covid-19 entry requirements will take effect on Monday, 14th February, according to an update from the UK Foreign Office.
Travelers who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will no longer be required to undergo a PCR test to enter the country, and they will no longer be required to do so on their eighth day of arrival.
The necessity for seven days of enforced home quarantine has also been eliminated; instead, vaccinated immigrants are asked to self-monitor for 14 days.
Before arriving, all travelers, regardless of vaccination status, must complete an online self-declaration form through the Air Suvidha portal.
According to the Foreign Office, scheduled international flights are still suspended, but under a bilateral agreement, a “small number of flights” between India and the UK are still functioning.
The advice warns that these arrangements could alter at any time, and that the aviation industry remains uncertain.
On arrival, all travelers will be subjected to a thermal screening by health inspectors.
