Do I need to quarantine upon arrival?
Yes, you must quarantine upon arrival. The Self-Declaration Form states a mandatory quarantine. This quarantine demands 14 days in isolation just in case any symptoms of COVID-19 appear during that period. The Indian government will assign an institution for the first 7 days of quarantine at your own expense. The final week of quarantine can be done at home.
Do I need to do the institutional quarantine?
According to Indian authorities, international travelers must comply with the 14-day quarantine (7 days in an institution and the last 7 days at home in self-isolation). If you are part of the next scenarios, you might be able to request the 14 days at home:
- You are pregnant or have children under 10 years old. Also, if you have a critical illness or there is a death in your family.
- You can provide a negative coronavirus test. The exam must be done within 96 hours before the travel date. You will need to attach a declaration about how trustable is the test you are providing.
You can explain your case during the application so you have the opportunity to spend the quarantine at home for the full 14 days. The Indian government has the final decision in this case.
