In the guidelines, India made seven-day home quarantine mandatory for all international arrivals and an RT-PCR test on the eighth day.

The guidelines have come into force from January 11 and will remain effective till further government orders.

Previously, travellers coming from countries specified as at risk had to submit sample for COVID testing post-arrival and were required to wait for their results at the airport before leaving or taking a connecting flight.

If tested negative they were needed to undergo home quarantine for seven days and then get their RT-PCR test done on the eighth.
