Government of India has announced the waiver of the requirement of coronavirus testing and uploading of 'air suvidha' forms for international arrivals from Singapore, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand and Japan.

2% random testing will continue for international passengers at airports.

Regarding this, the Union Health Secretary has written a letter to the Aviation Secretary to update the guidelines for international arrivals.

Official letter stated that, "The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare as a part of its proactive yet graded public health response to COVID-19 management has been updating 'Guidelines for International Arrivals’ from time to time. In the last update, based on the increasing trajectory of COVID-19 and circulation of mutant variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in some countries, the Ministry had mandated requirements of pre-departure COVID-19 testing and uploading of self-health declaration on the Ministry of Civil Aviation’s ‘Air Suvidha’ Portal."

Countries are seeing a significant decline in the pace of COVID-19 cases. Also, according to the latest situational update on COVID-19 by the World Health Organisation, an 89% decline in new confirmed cases has been reported globally in the last 28 days as compared to the 28 days before that. Meanwhile, India has also seen a declining trend, with less than 100 new cases/day being registered.
