India has signed important agreements with 11 countries, including Britain, France and Germany, the health ministry said on Wednesday. The agreement is aimed at mutually approving the nationally or World Health Organization (WHO) approved Covid-19 vaccine (Coronavirus Vaccine). Fully vaccinated passengers from the countries where the agreement has been signed may be allowed to leave the airport without home quarantine or screening.
Revised guidelines for international travelers were issued on Wednesday. The ministry said the new rules could be implemented in place of all travel guidelines issued on and after February 17, 2021. The ministry said Britain, France, Germany, Nepal, Belarus, Lebanon, Armenia, Ukraine, Belgium, Hungary and Serbia are the countries with which the government has entered into agreements for full national vaccination certification or WHO-approved vaccines for covid.
According to the revised guidelines, passengers from India-contracted countries will be allowed to leave the airport without a test. However, they will have to show RT-PCR negative report. If travelers from such countries come to India, they will have to take care of their own health for 14 days.
However, passengers who have been partially vaccinated or who have not received a dose of the vaccine will only be allowed to leave the airport after the Covid-19 test. Such passengers will again have to stay away from home for seven days. They will be examined again on the eighth day. Passengers from some European countries including South Africa, Brazil, Bangladesh, Botswana, China, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, UK may have to face additional procedures in India.
India, meanwhile, is expected to reach the 100 crore vaccination stage by Wednesday, taking the country 275 days to reach the record number. Given that the first dose of the vaccine was given on January 16, an average of 27 lakh doses have been given daily to reach the 100 crore mark.
