The Ministry of External Affairs, India urged countries that had banned travellers from India in April and May to resume travel with India.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said that some initial steps have been taken by the countries in this direction and the Government of India will continue to give it a high priority.

Bagchi also said that the National Health Authority of India is planning an event in which India will share details of its indigenously developed Coinage app, which was used extensively to track India's vaccination campaign.

On countries lifting travel restrictions imposed on India earlier this year at the start of a brutal second wave of Covid-19 infections, Bagchi said, "We would hope that as the covid-19 situation continues to improve in our country, the other countries would take steps to normalize travel with India. We have seen some initial steps in this regard. The government will continue to priorities this issue."

Bagchi's remarks came in response to a question on the condition of several Indian expatriates, who are staying in India, unable to return to countries of work due to restrictions on flights.

Covid-19 cases in India averaged 300,000 to 400,000 cases in the country in April-May, with the daily death toll touching 4,600 in a day.
