The Delhi Airport Authority has issued fresh guidelines for international passengers, making seven-day paid institutional quarantine followed by a week of home quarantine mandatory for them. Notably, India has established individual “bilateral bubbles” with some countries, including the US, France and Germany, to operate flights even as there’s a ban on all international flights till July 31.
The Airport Authority of India (AAI) has asked all the international passengers to sign an undertaking before the overseas mission or an embassy before booking a flight to India.
Those staying in Delhi-NCR areas will need to undergo mandatory health screening twice — first at the airport and then at the Delhi government post — once their flight lands in India.
The authority has also exempted four categories of people from the mandatory quarantine, including pregnant women, those with a death in the family, serious illness and parents with children below the age of 10.
