New Delhi, January 7

The government on Friday revised international travel guidelines in the wake of a rapidly expanding Covid pandemic and said all foreign arrivals, starting January 11, would have to undergo mandatory home quarantine for seven days.

The guidelines came as daily new Covid cases touched 1,17,100, the highest in 214 days. The last time India saw over 1 lakh cases was on June 7 (1,00,636 cases). The guidelines say all foreign travellers, including the 2 per cent who are selected for random testing on arrival and found negative, will undergo home quarantine for seven days and undertake RT-PCR test on the eighth day. Children under five will remain exempted from both pre and post-arrival testing. — TNS
