India ends travel restrictions for vaccinated tourists arriving from 99 countries and opened its border for foreign travelers for almost after 20 months on Monday, 15 November 2021. The decision has been taken amid a decline in Covid-19 cases.
After putting a ban on international travel in March last year, India ends travel restrictions and allows quarantine-free entry to fully vaccinated travelers from 99 countries (Category A Countries) including the USA, the UK, Kuwait, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, Germany, Sri Lanka, and Russia, which recognize the Indian vaccination certificates and those that exempt Indian citizens fully vaccinated with nationally or WHO-recognised vaccines, as per the Health Ministry’s list. The government only requires tourists to monitor their health for 14 days after their arrival.
All travelers have to upload a self-declaration form with a negative RT-PCR report and vaccination certificate within 72 hours of departure to India on Air Suvidha.
Meanwhile, India reported 10,229 new cases, while the number of active cases dropped to 1,34,096, the lowest in 523 days, as per the Health Ministry data. India’s COVID-19 recovery rate was recorded at 98.26 percent, which is the highest since March 2020.
