India implements new policies for inbound travelers

Effective October 25, the Indian Government implemented new policies for inbound travelers. Individuals traveling to India from “at risk” countries must take a reverse transmission polymerase chain reaction (RT PCR) COVID-19 test upon arrival and isolate for seven days in a private residence or hotel. These travelers must take another RT PCR COVID-19 test on their eighth day in India, and test negative, to end their mandatory isolation period. Travelers who test negative for COVID-19 on their eighth day in India must monitor their health for symptoms of COVID-19 for seven days following the end of their isolation period.
