As per the new guidelines, all foreign arrivals are required to fill out an online self-declaration form (available on the Air Suvidha website), which includes a travel history for the past 14 days as well as a negative RT-PCR in less than 72 hours after arrival.
A passenger can also upload a certificate that confirms they have received both vaccine doses, however this option is only available to 72 countries whose vaccination programs the Indian government recognizes as part of a reciprocal program.
Some of these countries include Canada, Hong Kong, the United States, the United Kingdom, Bahrain, Qatar, Australia, and New Zealand.
