United Kingdom nationals arriving in India from the UK will have to undergo mandatory quarantine from today. India has decided to impose reciprocity under which UK nationals arriving in India from the UK will have to undergo mandatory quarantine. The decision came after the United Kingdom announced new travel rules which state that Indian travellers, even those who have received both doses of the Covishield vaccine, will be considered unvaccinated.
Sources said, the new regulations will be applicable to all UK nationals arriving from the UK. All such persons arriving in India, irrespective of their vaccination status, will have to undertake measures like Pre-departure COVID-19 RT-PCR test within 72 hours before travel and on arrival at the airport. They will also have to undertake the RT-PCR test on Day-8 after arrival and undergo mandatory quarantine at home or in the destination address for 10 days after arrival in India.
