NEW DELHI: The government has reinstated its earlier guidelines by withdrawing a travel advisory issued on October 1 that made it mandatory for British nationals arriving in India to undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine even if they are fully vaccinated.
India had come out with the advisory as UK, even after recognising Covishield vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India, retained the 10-day quarantine period for fully vaccinated travellers from India.
The advisory has been withdrawn after the British government ordered discontinuation of mandatory testing and quarantine norms for those vaccinated with Covishield and travelling from India.
The health ministry said, “Based on the evolving scenario, it has been decided that the revised guidelines stand withdrawn and the earlier guidelines on international arrival issued on February 17 shall be applicable to all travellers arriving in India from the UK.”
