The discovery of the COVID-19 virus’s Omicron mutant and subsequent infected cases has caused the Indian government to reconsider its plan to resume regular foreign flights. India has already stated that scheduled foreign flights will resume operations on December 15; such flights have been prohibited in the country since March 2020, except those authorized under air travel bubble conditions.

Now that there is concern about Omicron, a newly found COVID-19 viral mutation, the December 15 deadline may be extended even further. Following an assessment of the current COVID situation, the Home Ministry released a statement noting that the decision on the effective date of the resumption of scheduled commercial international passenger service will be revisited in light of the changing worldwide situation. Other connected ministries, such as health and aviation, looked into the case as well.

Following the discovery of the new strain, several countries throughout the world have restricted flights, particularly to and from several South African countries. Mandatory testing of immigrants from Zimbabwe, Hong Kong, and South Africa has also been implemented in many Indian states, including Delhi.
