India has loosened quarantine rules for visitors from other countries.

If you’re an Indian travelling to the UK, good news has arrived for you. As of October 1, you will no longer be required to undertake costly PCR testing in the UK due to a planned change of the country’s present system. To comply with the new regulations, the UK intends to do away with the Amber category and limit quarantine measures to the remainder of the country. Because India is already on the amber list, PCR tests may be discontinued and quarantine regulations relaxed. More than 90% of Delhi residents have antibodies, according to the city’s sixth serosurvey.

For example, according to a story published today in India Today, industry insiders predict that by October 1, countries will be moved from the Amber to the Red zone from the three-tiered demarcation system. This might lead to a relaxation of quarantine regulations. Whether fully vaccinated Indian fliers will be accepted into the UK airspace is still up in the air, though.

Unless a person is completely vaccinated in the United Kingdom, the United States, or Europe, they must quarantine and do a PCR test on days 2 and 8 under current norms and standards.
