As the daily number of coronavirus cases continues to fall, India expects more countries to lift travel restrictions on travellers from India soon.

Recently, the Netherlands has resumed its international passenger flights from India and has become the first country to do so.

Also the largest German carrier Lufthansa has also resumed its non-stop international flight operations between Germany and India from June 02, 2021.

In early April this year, several countries imposed travel restrictions on passengers arriving from India and suspended flights to and from India. And many countries had put India in the red list for travel.


Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi
 said in a virtual weekly briefing with the media that some countries have started the process of easing travel restrictions on India.

He further added, "When covid-19 second wave began, some countries imposed temporary travel restrictions on India. We expect that these restrictions should be lifted when things normalize. We saw some countries started this process of easing restrictions, other countries should do the same we expect,".

Currently, countries like UAE, Canada, Australia, UK, Oman, Nepal, Philippines, Maldives, Kuwait, Italy, France, Germany and New Zealand have imposed restrictions on Indians.

And some countries, including the Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, Egypt and Turkey, had eased restrictions on travel from India to their countries.
