India open to incoming travellers from today.

All except tourists:

The Home Ministry has issued an order that it has been decided to allow all OCC and PIO card holders and all other foreign nationals, (except those on the tourist visa), who wish to visit India for any purpose. They are allowed to enter by air or water.

The Government of India had taken several steps to stop the inward and outward movement of international travelers from February 2020. The government has now decided to grant a gradual relaxation in visas and travel restrictions for foreign nationals and more categories of Indian citizens wishing to enter or leave India.

Foreign and Indian citizens can avail flights to enter or exit the country by the Ministry of Civil Aviation under the arrangement of the Vanda India Mission and Air Transport bubble or under any commercial flights.

However, all such passengers will be required to follow the guidelines related to COVID-19 issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of India. The Home Ministry further announced that all existing visas, except electronic visas, tourist visas and medical visas, are being restored with immediate effect.
