International travelers will be required to register their current health status on the Air Suvidha website before boarding a flight to India. The new regulation was jointly announced by the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. As per current sources, the indicated portal’s exemption forms have been temporarily stopped.
Passengers would be required to present a copy of their passport, a vaccination certificate, and a negative RT-PCR test within 72 hours of departure. For arrival in India, a copy received via e-mail will be required for immigration purposes, which must be validated at the APHO counter. Those traveling from “at-risk” nations will also be required to take a test upon arrival, which may be scheduled in advance by clicking on the testing facility link.

- They’ll have to fill out a self-declaration form on the Air Suvidha website.
- They must also submit a negative RT-PCR test report to the site; the test must have been completed within 72 hours of the travel.
- They will also be asked to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival at the airport, which will be paid for by them.
