India issues new guidelines, as passengers coming to India from any country and testing positive will not be compulsorily managed in an quarantine facility. Though they will be treated/quarantined as per the prescribed standard guidelines, not necessarily in an isolation facility or may be treated in home also.

The new guidelines will come into effect from January 22, 2022 and will remain in force till further orders. It is that the rest of the provisions will remain the same as in the revised guidelines. 

As per the extant guidelines, travelers coming from any country, including those considered 'at risk', will be managed in an isolation facility, and will be treated as per the said standard protocols.

The updated guidelines have removed the clause that makes it mandatory to stay in an quarantine facility on arrival. Those found to be symptomatic during the screening will be immediately isolated and taken to a medical facility as per health protocols. The contacts of those found positive will be identified and managed as per protocol.

Foreign arrivals who test positive will still have to undergo home quarantine for 7 days, and even if they test negative, they will have to undergo RT-PCR test on the 8th day of arrival in India.
