The ban on scheduled international passenger flights in India has been in effect from March 23, 2020, according to the Indian government. Special passenger flights have been operating between India and around 40 nations since July 2020 as a result of air bubble agreements that have been made with these countries.
Currently, India has air transport bubbles with the following countries: Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Canada, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Iraq, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Maldives, Mauritius, Nepal, Netherlands, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tanzania, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, and Uzbekistan.
Last week, the Ministry of Health issued a statement informing travellers that, in addition to uploading a negative RT-PCR report (taken 72 hours before travel), they now have the option to upload a certificate indicating that they have completed the full primary vaccination schedule of COVID-19 vaccination provided by countries that reciprocate. In addition, all travellers will self-monitor their health for the first 14 days following their arrival. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said that if travellers undergoing self-health monitoring develop signs and symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, they should immediately self-isolate and report to their nearest health facility or call the National helpline number (1075)/State Helpline Number.
