India introduces mandatory two-week quarantine for tourists

India’s Ministry of Health has tightened entry rules. From January 11, all foreign nationals who arrive, regardless of vaccination status, will be sent to solitary confinement. This was reported by the Times of India portal with reference to the order of the agency.

Now tourists have to spend a week at the hotel. It is possible to use the hotel infrastructure, but travelers are not allowed to leave their accommodation. On the 8th day you need to pass the PCR test and upload its results to a special portal Air Suvidha.

If the tourist is not diagnosed with coronavirus, he will be able to continue the rest without restrictions, the infected will be re-tested and treated in the isolation ward in accordance with current codes.

In addition, some foreigners arriving in India are waiting for mandatory paid testing at the airport. Local services will choose the passengers who will have to pass the PCR test. Children under 5 are exempt from the procedure.

It should be noted that in Goa, against the background of increasing cases of COVID-19 infection, a curfew was imposed. Tourists are not allowed to leave the hotel from 23:00 to 6:00. Authorities have not yet specified for how long the restriction will be imposed.
