According to Mansukh Mandaviya, the union Health minister, a negative COVID report would be required starting in January for travelers arriving in India from China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand.

The RT-PCR test’s negative results must be uploaded on the Air Suvidha portal before their departure, according to the Minister, and the COVID test must be completed within 72 hours before beginning the travel to India.

Regardless of their point of departure, international travelers are subject to random testing when they arrive in India. The government mandated random coronavirus testing for 2% of all passengers arriving on each overseas flight last week.
