Latest Guidelines for visiting these states in India

Latest Guidelines for visiting these states in India

India has detected two new cases of Omicron variant of the coronavirus until now, the government said on Thursday. Both the new cases have been reported in Karnataka, with the patients being two men aged 46 and 66.

Around the world, about 29 countries have reported 373 cases of the Omicron variant so far.

Because of this, the Centre has revised its guidelines for international travelers coming to India, effective from 1 December.

As per the new norms, passengers arriving from 'at at risk' countries need to undergo an RT-PCR test on arrival.

If found positive, they will be treated according to the clinical management protocols, and samples will be sent to related labs for genomic sequencing.

If the test report is negative, the traveler will be sent to home quarantine for seven days and will need to take an RT-PCR test on the eighth day.

Random samples will be taken from 2% of the travelers on arrival at the airport for travelers from other than at-risk countries.

The same rules apply to travelers coming via sea or land as well. Children under five are exempted from pre and post-arrival testing. They will be treated and tested as per SOP if they are symptomatic.

Guidelines by state governments:


Maharashtra on Thursday amended its air travel rules making seven-day institutional quarantine mandatory for passengers from only three countries – South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.

  • They will have to go through an RT-PCR test immediately on arrival at the respective international airport and take a second test on the seventh day.
  • If the passenger tests positive for Covid in any of the tests, they will be shifted to a hospital.
  • If the Covid test comes negative on the seventh day, they will undergo an additional seven days of home quarantine.
  • All arriving passengers will have to declare details of the countries visited in the last 15 days.
  • In the case of domestic travel, passengers will have to be fully vaccinated or compulsorily carry a negative RT-PCR test report not older than 72 hours.

  • The passenger will then be retested on the eighth day of home quarantine or whenever they develop symptoms during quarantine.
  • If the report of RT-PCR comes negative, they will self-monitor for one more week at strict home quarantine.
