Air Suvidha is Where India-bound Travelers Must Fill out Self-declaration Form and Upload Negative RT-PCR Report

In August 2020, the government of India launched AIR SUVIDHA, a first-of-its-kind facility easing travel to India for international travelers amid the pandemic. Integrated to the website of New Delhi International Airport, Air Suvidha can make or break your travel plans for India. Compulsory for everyone traveling on air bubble flights to India from USA and other countries, the portal put an end to the confusion and inconvenience that India-bound flyers had gone through until the end of July, with regard to the very first step one needs to take for safe and easy travel to India from abroad.

India’s revised guidelines that took effect on OCT 25, 2021 for international arrivals have been reviewed further to exempt children under 5 years of age from the pre-departure COVID-19 testing requirement. With effect from November 12, children below five don’t need to take an RT-PCR test prior to their scheduled travel to India. In case they are found symptomatic for COVID-19 during thermal screening on arrival, they will be put to a test.

It is Air Suvidha where you must fill out a self-declaration form and upload your negative RT-PCR report within 72 hours of undertaking the journey. The portal integrates the self-declaration form with an ‘Apply Now’ button. A left click on the button opens up the Air Suvidha Self Declaration form that must be filled with your/the traveler’s contact number, passport number, PNR number, flight/tail number and other details. On successful submission of the self-declaration form, you will receive an email confirmation carrying a PDF in attachment. Make sure to carry 2-3 printouts of the PDF because the hard copy may be asked for during boarding and on arrival. It will help not only you, but also the officials in expedite boarding and reducing inbound traffic congestion in the arrival area of entry airports.

Many travelers wonder whether they should use the same Air Suvidha on Delhi IGI Airport website if they are flying to Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, or Kolkata. Air Suvidha is the one-stop solution for all India-bound travelers, irrespective of their entry airport and final destination in India. Though Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu have their own portals where you are required to register as well if you are traveling to any of these states, Air Suvidha is common to all.

The revision of the rules for international flyers to India that had taken effect on February 23, 2021 removed four categories of exemption from institutional quarantine in India. Air Suvidha had the provision for travelers to seek exemption from taking an RT-PCR test in the exigency of death in family. That provision has also been removed after the new guidelines for international arrivals to India took effect on October 25, 2021. In case of no exemption, it is mandatory to take an RT-PCR test for everyone travelling to India, irrespective of age, and upload the negative report on Air Suvidha. Without a negative RT-PCR report, you cannot board your flight to India.

Air Suvidha, an extension of Indira Gandhi International Airport, does also let you track the status of your self-reporting application. There is an additional provision on Air Suvidha for fully-vaccinated travelers to upload their vaccination certificates.

        2 questions.

        Is the tail no. mandatory if I have the flight no (BA) ?

        I land at Mumbai and will spend 3 days there before flying on to Chennai. Does this count as a connecting flight to Air Suvidha?

      Hi Viswanatha! You must have a compelling reason like medical emergency, an accompanying child below 10 years of age, an accompanying pregnant woman, death in the family in India to apply for exemption from the mandatory 7-day institutional quarantine. Or, you can be exempted from institutional quarantine upon submitting a negative RT-PCR test on arrival in India, and the test should be conducted within 96 hours of the scheduled onward travel to India and uploaded to the website of the primary destination airport. Giving a declaration with respect to the authenticity of the RT-PCR test report is compulsory. You will find the Air Suvidha option on the website of Delhi Airport.

    My brother is travelling to India on 15th and planning to get the covid test done at the airport done on the same day.
    Can he show the -ve report at the arrival because he will getting the report on the same day without registering on air suvidha portal?
    How can he ask for exemption by registering on airsuvidha portal as it says you need to ask for exemption 72hrs prior to your journey?

      Hi Krishan! A person traveling to India needs to undergo the COVID-19 test within 96 hours of the scheduled flight to India. He/she can submit the report on arrival in India. Before that, the traveler needs to fill out a self-health declaration form which can be found on the ‘Air Suvidha’ section of the New Delhi airport website. Filling out the form and submitting it online along with copies of passport and flight tickets must be done at least 72 hours before the scheduled flight to India. Hope your query is addressed satisfactorily.

    Hi Indian Eagle,

    We have heard that even after the PCR -ve test was submitted, people were still quarantined in Delhi and were restricted to travel further to final destinations. Please advise on the authenticity.
    Secondly, facilities here in NYC and Downtown Chicago may or may not provide the PCR test result within 96 hours. Please advise if you know any specific facilities can confirm to provide test results within 90 hours.

    Hi, I’m traveling form United States to Delhi on August 14. I tried getting the RT-PCR COVID test but they don’t allow getting a test if you don’t have any symptoms and are not referred by a doctor and currently, it takes 6-10 days to get the results. Would I be able to get an exemption if I take the rapid test instead of RT-CPR?
    Also, I live in Jaipur but my flight is only until Delhi. Can I travel from Delhi to Jaipur by road upon arrival or am I able to get on a domestic flight to Jaipur if I don’t have a negative RT-PCR test?

      Hi Sonal! If your international PNR does not include the domestic leg and if you don’t submit the RT-PCR COVID test, chances are high that you will be quarantined for 7 days at an institutional facility upon arrival in Delhi.

      Hi Rajesh! If the international leg and the domestic leg are in the same PNR, the approval for exemption from institutional quarantine will possibly apply to the entire itinerary. Exemption from 7-day institutional quarantine in Delhi or Ahmadabad means 14 days of home quarantine.

      Hi Alka! The same certificate which will probably help you avoid being quarantined on arrival at Delhi Airport will help you get accommodated overnight in a hotel. You can go through a hotel-booking portal, select hotels and call them to know if they have any regulations. Road travel from Delhi is permissible. Maybe you need an e-pass to enter a different state by road.

      Hi Manesh! Filling out a self-declaration form is must. You can fill it out and upload online. Or you can fill out a hard copy during the flight. You may not need to apply for exemption from institutional quarantine in Delhi, as your entire itinerary is under VBM. Yes, you are required to fill out an exemption form if you are looking to avoid institutional quarantine in the final destination.

    Hi I will be traveling to Bagdogra from New York via United Airlines. The first port of entry is New Delhi, and there is a connecting flight to Bagdogra operated by Vistara on the same day. My question is if institutional quarantine is indeed a requirement at Delhi before any onward domestic connections are permitted, why is the airlines selling such itineraries ? I am confused whether the institutional quarantine will be at New Delhi or at Bagdogra ? Also, in the USA RT-PCR tests are only being carried out on persons displays COVID19 symptoms. So I will probably not be able to furnish a negative RC-PCR test certificate, and seek exemption from institutional quarantine.

      Hi Vijaya! We’re very sorry to know about your father. Hope he will recover soon. Karnataka government has scrapped 7-day institutional quarantine for people from abroad. Only those who will be found symptomatic during thermal screening and pulse oximeter reading on arrival at Bengaluru Airport will be sent to institutional quarantine. You need to fill out a self-declaration form on Air Suvidha. In case, you face any issue while filling out the form online, you can fill it up on board during the flight and submit it on arrival at the airport. And, you can also carry the latest medical reports of your father. make sure that you are found asymptomatic during thermal screening at Bengaluru Airport.

If they are found symptomatic (fever, cold, cough, sore throat) in thermal screening, they will be shifted to a COVID Care Center for testing.

      Hi Sawai! You won’t be quarantined if you hold a single PNR for the entire itinerary from USA to Rajasthan. On arrival at Delhi airport, you will get a passage to board your pre-booked domestic flight after thermal screening. If you are found symptomatic (feverish temperature, cough, cold or sore throat) in thermal screening at Delhi airport or the final destination in Rajasthan, you will be shifted to a medical facility for COVID testing. FYI, Delhi airport has launched a dedicated COVID testing facility for international travelers flying in. You can get yourself tested and receive the report in 7 hours if your domestic flight is scheduled after 8 hours of your arrival at Delhi airport.

      Hi Krishna! There are three steps to be taken by your in-laws. First, they need to fill out a self-health declaration form in the Air Suvidha section of New Delhi IGI Airport website (you can fill it out on behalf of them and give them a printout). Second, they need to register their details on https://covid19jagratha.kerala.nic.in/. Third, they need to obtain an e-pass from this Kerala portal. Upon arrival, they will be asked to show the e-pass to the health official at the Thiruvananthapuram airport. 14-day home quarantine is mandatory for everyone traveling to Kerala from abroad. Institutional quarantine is only for symptomatic travelers from abroad.

    Your response will be appreciated.

    Thanks a mill

      Hi Rohit! In case of a medical emergency, you are eligible for exemption from institutional quarantine in India. Second, you carry a negative RT-PCR test report, institutional quarantine won’t enforced upon you.

    Hi Indian Eagle,

    My Dad will be undergoing a bypass surgery. I wanted to be there to support my parents during this time. I will be flying in from USA and I wanted to know if this is within one of the categories for exemption from quarantine.

    Thank you.

      Hi Rahul! We’re very sorry to learn about your father. May he get well soon! Yes, a medical emergency back home in India makes you eligible for exemption from institutional quarantine. Please note, you need to carry valid medical documents recently issued by an authorized physician. For any other assistance and for booking the most suitable itinerary, you can contact our travel advisors at 1-800-615-3969.

    Hi,

    My father will be travelling from Houston, US to San Francisco, US and then staying in SF for 2 days. He will then travel to Delhi from San Francisco. He will be getting tested in Houston as the test result takes 3-5 days to come out and also needs to be uploaded atleast 72 hours prior to the flight. Is that okay?

    Hello,
    I’m due to travel from Dublin, Ireland to Kochi, India via Dubai. I have filled the self declaration form in air suvidha. This form has to be shown upon arrival to India? Also do I need a COVID test certificate?

    What other documents are mandatory?

    The connecting flights have different flight numbers, which number should I use to fill the form? There is space for only one.

    Many thanks,
    Sulthana

      Hello! Since you have two PNRs for your itinerary, you may need to fill out the self-declaration form twice: one for the Dublin to Dubai flight, and the other for the Dubai to Kochi flight. Yes, the filled-out forms have to be shown upon arrival in India. Kerala has scrapped mandatory institutional quarantine for asymptomatic travelers from abroad. Hence, it is compulsory to have a negative COVID-19 test certificate. You need to register your details on Kerala’s COVID-19 Jagratha portal and obtain an e-pass from https://covid19jagratha.kerala.nic.in/home/addMedicalEmergencyPass. Please note, without the e-pass, you will not be allowed to exit the port of entry in Kerala. Hope this information addresses your query.

        Hi,

        I am traveling in November 2020 from SanFrancisco -> New York -> Delhi -> Chennai, in three different flights with same PNR. I have submitted the self declaration form with origin city as SFO and flight number with New York to Delhi. Do I need to fill a different self declaration form?

        Reply
        • indianeagle Post author

          Hi Uma! Basically, you need to fill out only one form – the self-reporting form on Air Suvidha. You are supposed to receive two forms from the airline: one for entry to India and the other for entry to your home state. If you are applying for exemption from institutional quarantine, you need to fill out an exemption form with your declaration ascertaining the authenticity of the Rt-PCR test/any other reason for exemption.

            Hi
            Thank you for your swift response. I booked through United airlines and did not receive any forms to fill. I did my own research and saw one self declaring form and exemption. I filled in the flight details and Chennai address in it in the air suvidha portal. I have set up an appointment for rt pcr test (I need to take the test 96 hours before arrival in Delhi right?) and once i have the results (if at all before boarding) i will apply the exemption form. I have installed the arokya settu app. I do not have an Indian number so I filled in my US number for suvidha portal forms and my dad number in India for arokya setu app.

            Have I missed anything at all? The guidelines are not really provided very clearly in any government site. and I appreciate all your efforts and time you are taking in answering these questions.

      Hi Masood! The country of origin here means the country where you reside or where the first leg of your itinerary will begin. If you are looking to get exempted from institutional quarantine at the port of entry or your final destination in India, you need to take a RT-PCR test in your country of origin.

      Hi Vijay! We are not sure what the message means. Please contact and check with the place where you took the test. FYI, you won’t be quarantined in Delhi, the port of entry, because Hyderabad is your final destination. If you are found symptomatic in thermal screening upon arrival at Delhi airport, you will be taken for testing. May we know how long the layover at Delhi is, and whether your entire itinerary is ticketed in a single PNR?

You need an Indian phone number to install the Arogya Setu app. In general, Mumbai has 14-day home quarantine policy for all international arrivals. To get it cut short to 7 days, you can travel with valid medical documents of your mother-in-law in Hyderabad and confirmed tickets of your travel to Hyderabad to Mumbai, and show those upon arrival at Mumbai airport. Hope it will work for you.

    I am flying from Chicago to New delhi via Air india on Nov 29th at 12:30 pm cst. My final dest is also New Delhi. Today was thanks giving holiday and hence the clinic where I am planning to take the RT-PCR test was closed. so I will be taking my RT-PCR test on Nov 27th morning and uploading the -ve test result (hoping it is -ve) along with exemption form. Although as per my plan, I do have good 55 hours before my flight takes off from Chicago but in case the approval doesn’t come by then what should I do? Should I book an appointment for RT-PCR at New Delhi airport or travel with my ERO number and provide that to airport authorities so that they can check online? Please advise. thanks

Yes you are eligible for exemption from institutional quarantine at both Delhi and Hyderabad for traveling with a minor. But you (others as well) may need a negative Rt-PCR test certificate to be allowed on domestic flight from Delhi airport.

    I am planning to travel to India from USA on the 19th. I was tested positive for COVID on 5th. I have recovered completely and my doctor has cleared me for traveling on 19th. Because I had COVID before, there is a chance that the test will come out as positive because of the dead virus in my body. I am totally fine and I cannot spread the virus to anyone as I have completed the isolation and recovered. In this case, is there some additional documentation that I can give so that I will be allowed to travel to Bangalore on landing in Delhi? Like a note from the doctor? Please advise! Thank you so much for your time!

        1) How many days before departure self declaration can be submitted ?
        2) If I apply Exemption with RT-PCR , and test result does not come within 72 hours, then i will not have any result to upload. not sure if test center will provide receipt while doing drive thru test. In that case, how to get exemption ?
        3) Do i need to carry any hard copy of test result, delf declaration form , passport etc ?
        4) Will VBM flight air india allow to board flight at departure airport in US without RT-PCR document ?
        5 ) If i am unable to do RT-PCR in US, then can i do it in Delhi airport ? Are they 24X7 as my landing time in delhi would be around 11:30 PM
        6) Can I travel without filling exemption form and go for PCR test in delhi airport ? How long does it take for test result ?

          Hi Mamp! You can travel on Air India and arrive at Delhi Airport without a pre-departure RT-PCR negative result. Yes, you can take a test and fill out a self-declaration form after arrival at Delhi Airport. If you receive the RT-PCR test result in your email by the time you land at Delhi airport, you can show it to the health officials at Delhi Airport. In case you choose to get tested after arrival, you can travel without filling the exemption form.

      You can fill in Exemption Form without the ERO Number. After submission of this Form you will get an E mail with SRO Number, which you can fill in the Self Reporting Form, which you can fill in and submit. After submitting this you will get exemption E mail from Institutional Quarentine. This is what I gathered from many Videos on Youtube.
      Govt should have clarified this aspect. Logically self reporting form comes first and then seek an exemption. I am also traveling from SFO to BOM on 29th Jan 2021.

      Hi Ramesh! We’re very sorry about your loss and the mishap in the family. We recommend you apply for exemption in the special category. If approved, no RT-PCR test is required if there is no further domestic air travel from Mumbai. In case a negative RT-PCR test is mandatory, you can take an Express COVID test after arrival at Mumbai Airport.

    Is it possibly because Bengaluru Airport does not require a rt-pcr negative test?

      Hello! No idea what the problem is on Air Suvidha. Currently, all international arrivals traveling to Bangalore need a negative RT-PCR certificate. No worries. if you are not able to apply on Air Suvidha, you can carry the hard copy of the report and show it on arrival at the airport.

    If we take a PCR test in US and she does not get her results by the time she leaves, can we upload her results before her arrival at the airport and send her the emails of approval to show on her phone? Does she have to have the physical copy?

      Hi Gayu! If she does not have a serious medical problem, she won’t get exemption from institutional quarantine without a negative RT-PCR report. If the test report is valid (it has a stamp/signature from the testing lab), she can show the hard/soft copy to the health officials at Mumbai Airport. Make sure to upload the report to Air Suvidha and send to your mother’s email inbox the moment the result is available.

You need to fill out a self-reporting form and apply for exemption based on an RT-PCR test on Air Suvidha (a section of Delhi IGI Airport website) within 72 hours prior to your journey from Dubai. You need to take an RT-PCR test not before 72 hours of undertaking the journey and upload the report on to Air Suvidha before you board the departure flight in Dubai.

            It was 2am the night before our flight back from Maldives to India when I was getting the “invalid file size” error uploading the PCR PDF file and I ran a desperate Google search and came across this incredibly helpful thread.

            The site has some problem accepting the upload from iPhone. Based on Mr. Malik’s resourcefulness below I filled out the entire form for 3 passengers again (painstakingly on a mobile phone) using Android Chrome’s “Desktop Site” mode and successfully registered.

            Then I had the hotel desk print FOUR COPIES as instructed on the site, and boy am I glad I did — at Hyderabad Airport they werent accepting arrivals without hard copy, even though the confirmation message shows “soft copy” is acceptable.

            Thank you to IndianEagle forum and Mr. Malik for helping get us home! Without these suggestions we would have been in queue for over 4 hours with a 3 year old, fighting with the APHO authorities to allow us to enter and come home.

    Hi: My parents will be travelling on a direct flight from Newark, NJ to Mumbai on Friday. Mumbai is not their final destination. After few hours of hold in Mumbai, they will board their flight to Vadodara. I have two questions:

    They recently did their RT-PCR test within 72 hours before journey begins. We have not yet received the results yet but we should before they leave on Friday. If they are negative (which we expect them to be), would providing a hard copy of the results be acceptable to make sure they are not put in institutionalized quarantine? Would having the results electronically be acceptable?

    Second question is, we forgot to put PNR number in the self-declaration form. Is there a way to edit the form? I don’t believe it was a required field in the application. Would not having the PNR number in the self-declaration form be an issue?

The guys who take the swab tests are not authorised to do such jobs. the APP gives the Result on digital format and in most cases such papers doesn’t need any signatures and Stamps. Unfortunately the Suvidha system is rejecting it. what will happen to me at Delhi? I will be traveling onward to Bangalore.

      Hi Akash! You may be subject to 7-day institutional quarantine in Mumbai upon arrival because of your transit in Middle East and your final destination is Mumbai.

    Hello,
    I would be travelling from Canada to Hyderabad with a flight change at London, united kingdom n both the flight bookings are under the same PNR. In the Air Suvidha form, do I need to put Canada or London as city of origin? What about the flight number, will it be one for Canada to London or London to Hyderabad?
    Thanks!

      Hi Rajesh! Canada is your city of origin, and the flight number you need to provide is that of the Canada to London. Be requested to share your travel experience along with some details of the transit and the arrival. Wish you safe travel!

    I have flight from Warsaw – Dubai – New Delhi. So what should be my country of origin, city of origin and flight number. Should I enter country of origin as UAE and city of origin as Dubai? Please advise.

      Hi Jugal! Your country of origin should be Poland and city of origin should be Warsaw. If your entire journey is on the same flight, then you will enter that flight’s number. But, if you are flying on separate flights, then you should enter the number of international flight to India.

        I hope you can answer my questions or, perhaps, guide me to any FAQ page.
        I wish to travel to India (from US, direct) in a couple of weeks but am confused about how to properly use the “self declaration form”.
        -Do I need to submit the form at least 72 hours prior to travel?
        -That creates a problem because one is also expected to provide a negative test result from less than 72 hours prior to tarve.
        How does one reconcile these two requirements?
        [Maybe, one files the form early and then uploads the test results when they become available?]
        -If I have a negative test result, are there any quarantine/isolation requirements OR I may walk out of the airport and proceed to my destination right away?
        And, last:
        -Does it matter what is the reason for my travel?
        [I am a US citizen and just wish to visit my family in Rajasthan.]
        Thank you very much for your help with answering these, and for the yeoman service that you have provided to all travelers over the past nearly a year.

          Hi Umesh ji! You can submit the self-declaration form and upload the negative report together within 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure. If you have a valid visa, you don’t need to specify any reason for travel. Please note e-visa and tourist visa are currently suspended. There is no institutional quarantine in Rajasthan. If you travel via Europe or Middle East, you will have to give your swab sample for a test at the arrival/entry airport and take a connecting domestic flight to Rajasthan.

    From what I have read in this thread so far, am I correct in understanding that one needs to fill both forms: the exemption form as well the self declaration form?
    And, that one cannot travel to India unless one receives some sort of approval on the exemption request?
    OR, is it that if one has a negative PCR test result, one doesn’t need the exemption form?

        So, if I am traveling direct from the US, on a nonstop flight, and have a negative RT-PCR test result from within 72 hours of my departure from the US, there would be no issues on my arrival at Delhi airport?
        I would like to take a train to Rajasthan which departs within about 4 hours from arrival of my flight and I would like to leave about an hour to get from the airport to the train station.
        Thanks again for your kind assistance.

          Hello Umesh ji! No problem on arrival at Delhi Airport if you are asymptomatic and carry 2-3 printouts of the negative RT-PCR report uploaded on Air Suvidha within 72 hours of your departure from the US. FYI, Rajasthan requires all travelers arriving by air, trains, buses and cars to carry a negative RT-PCR report that must not be older than 72 hours prior to arrival in the state. Please check whether your RT-PCR report issued in the USA remains valid till your arrival in Rajasthan. Otherwise, you will have to take a test and get the result before traveling to Rajasthan or undergo quarantine for 15 days.

The actual report that we have from previous tests doesn’t mention RT-PCR explicitly but only COVID-19 PCR test while on the page with link to download the report mentions RT-PCR with a link to get more information.

    Is it required to have RT-PCR mentioned in the report or COVID-19 PCR would be fine? If RT-PCR is required then we would need to find a different test source to get our results.

    I don’t know if somebody already asked this question but I have this question, If someone was tested positive for covid then that person is likely to test positive for next 3 months in some cases, In this case if he wants to travel to India then how can he travel because he will get positive test result. For entry to USA and Canada they have provision for such cases that they can show the recent positive test and get a letter from doctor or public health that he/she is fit to fly. But there is no such provision there in AIR suvidha portal.

    2. Is a QR code on the test report necessary? Not all testing agencies report with a QR code.
    3. If the flight is delayed by a few hours due to weather or issues from the airline-side, what happens to the validity of the test and the 72-hr window?
    4. Does anyone know of fast RT-PCR testing sites in Denver and Denver suburbs? Any leads will be helpful.

      Hi AG! As far as we know, RT-PCR test with nasal/throat swab would be fine. A QR code is mandatory for passengers flying out of India and not the other way, so please check with the airline.

    I will be travelling with my 1 year old kid from USA to India. Self Declaration form shows number of passengers travelling. Do I need to mention as 2 and fill self declaration form for my kid as well?

      Hi SV! As far as we know, you need to mention number of travelers as 2 since the Self-declaration form is must for all international arrivals.

    Hi, I am traveling with my family from SFO (US) –> Dubai –> Delhi (India) on June 26th by Emirates and PNR/booking number is same for entire trip. What should be entered in Air Suvidha Self declaration form. ** I read almost all comments in this blog about Flight number, some comments says Flight number should be of Origin country which is the first flight but some comments says International flight landing in India (Delhi), I am confused which one is correct.

    1. Flight number – Should it be of SFO(US) –> Dubai or Dubai to Delhi(India)
    2. Will there be any Covid19 test again after landing in Delhi?.
    3. I dont have any domestic connecting flight but I will be staying in Delhi for 3 days for US Visa interview, after that I would be flying to Andhra Pradesh by domestic flight – I feel I no need to say “yes” for “are you taking a domestic connecting flight” but need confirmation whether I am correct or not. Also as I would be staying in Delhi Hotel for 3 days until I finish my Visa processing, will this cause any concerns

    Thanks in advance for your suggestion and comments

      Hi Naga! As far as we know, you need to enter the flight number from SFO since the entire journey is on same PNR number. Yes, you will be required to submit your swab sample for a molecular test upon arrival at Delhi Airport. You need not select taking a connecting domestic flight. Please be advised to check with the airline as well. You might be allowed to stay at hotel without any issues.

    Hi, I am flying Emirates from Los Angeles (LAX) to Mumbai (BOM) with halt in Dubai (DXB). I know I have to fill out the self-declaration form. I do not have a seat number yet, should I wait until the day when I get the seat number at LAX? Do I need to fill out a form to avoid institutional quarantine because I am fully vaccinated? Also, just to make sure, I use the flight number for the flight from LAX to DXB correct? Thank you.

      Hi Dhairya! Yes, you might have to wait till you get a seat number and yes, your flight number from LAX to DXB is what you need to enter. However, please be advised to call the helpline number of Delhi International Airport to see if there’s any other way to deal with the seat number. You need not fill out any other form for exemption, you just need to present your vaccine certificate indicating both doses of COVID-19 vaccine to the satisfaction of the in-charge officer on arrival at Mumbai Airport for exemption.

        Thank you so much. I called Delhi Airport and they said it is fine if I get the seat number at LAX because it only takes 15-20 minutes for them to approve the self-declaration form which should not interfere with my arrival in BOM.

    hi,

    My wife and my 2 daughters (2 yrs and 8yrs old) are travelling from London to UK. Could you advise on what
    are the formalities for them to reach home without any problems please? I have listed some of the things here. Please let me know if I have missed out anything.

    1. Complete self declaration form for all three – Do they need to fill it online or print and carry along?
    2. Negative RT-PCR test 72 hrs prior to the flight departure – Since my daughters are under 11, do they both need to go through this test as well?
    3. Do they need to apply for exemption online since she is along with under aged kids?

    Besides above, let me know if I need to do anything for them to have uninterrupted journey.

      Hi Pat! There seems to be a typing mistake, can you please tell us to which place in India are they traveling to? After filling out the self-declaration form online, they will get a pdf or such file in e-mail which needs to be printed out as well. Yes, both your daughters are also required to present pre-arrival negative RT-PCR report. No, there is no need to fill any form online for exemption.

    Hi,

    My wife and kids are flying from JFK-AUH-AMD on Thursday 7/22. I had a few questions regarding SDF. I wish they would have proper instructions, although i’ve read through all the comments I just want to make sure.

    1. Can I fill out the SDF for them now? and then go back and add their test results. They are taking their RT-PCR test at Walgreens tomorrow morning, and as soon as we get results I can come back and upload. Or is it better to just wait til we get results and then upload?

    2. Has anyone used a Walgreens test?

    3. Which flight number should be entered? JFK-AUH or AUH-AMD? Also pertaining to this question further down on form it asks for city of departure. If i were to put AUH-AMD flight number on the form would I put New York or Abu Dhabi as departure?

    4. What does it mean by Final Destination Tehsil?

    TIA

      Hi Amrish! You need to fill out the SDF along with uploading the negative RT-PCR report. As far as we know, you need to enter the flight number of your JFk-AUH flight if the entire journey is booked on the same PNR. Your city of departure might be New York. Final destination Tehsil means the place where your journey will end in India.

    Hello
    My family will be travelling from Seoul to Delhi (with same PNR number). Qatar Airline at Seoul recommends showing Covid negative repart and test being taken 48 hours before departure time. However it takes 1 day to get the covid report. Hence at the time of filling Air Suvidha form we will have just 1 day to reach Delhi. My question is Exemption from quarantine could take more than 1 day so what could be done to be on safer side ?

    My wife and son (3yrs) will be flying out from Toronto & reaching Delhi via Dubai. Questions-
    1. Do I need to fill out self declaration forms for both? In other words, do I need to start the entire process on this page – “https://www.newdelhiairport.in/airsuvidha/apho-registration” twice?
    2. The form needs flight/tail# – should this be the flight originating in Toronto or the connecting flight from Dubai?
    3. If we upload a negative RT-PCR report within 72 hours, do they still need to get another test done after arriving in Delhi?
    4. Once submitted, can any of the information be edited/corrected if required?
    5. If travel date is Aug-7th, when should I start the process of filling out the SDF on the Air Suvidha portal?

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Shouvik! You need fill out the details in one form only. If the entire journey is on the same PNR, then the flight tail number should be of the one that departs from Toronto. Yes, they will be required to undergo a molecular test on arrival despite having pre-arrival negative RT-PCR report. Yes, the self-declaration form can be edited and also, it should be submitted along with uploading your negative RT-PCR report.

    Hello! I will be flying to Delhi from Montreal via Doha (YUL-DOH-DEL) with Qatar Airways. The ticket is on the same PNR. I just wanted to confirm a few things regarding the Air Suvidha portal, and would appreciate your feedback.
    1. The tail number, as I understand from the various comments, would be for the flight YUL-DOH? And the Country of Departure would be Canada, and the City of Origin Montreal?
    2. The PCR test has to be taken at most 72 hours from the first flight (YUL-DOH)?
    3. Is there any registration required with the Indian High Commission in Canada? From what I have read so far, it seems the registration applies to travellers on the VBM flights, but I just want to be sure.

        It might be that the ticketing software emits the first digit of the numeric in case it is a zero. When I had booked the same sector in the past directly from KLM, the flight number was KL0877

      Hi Ramya! Your departure country is Canada. There is no test for transit travelers in Dubai. Because of your transit in the Middle East, you will have to give your swab sample on arrival at Hyderabad Airport. However, you will be allowed to exit the airport without waiting for the test result. You can travel within India right from the day of arrival in India.

    We are flying Lufthansa EWR (New Jersey, usa) — FRA (frankfurt, Germ) — BOM under same PNR. Do I use USA, Newark for country/city of departure? Flight Number & seat info, do I use the EWR – FRA flight or the FRA – BOM info?

    I keep coming back with different questions regarding a trip later this month. 🙁
    Please bear with me.

    I will travel Newark-Mumbai and after a 4-day stay Mumbai, will to Rajasthan, eventually returning to the US from Delhi.
    Q: In the Air Suvidha form, it asks for full address etc. of my “final destination”.
    Is that final destination for me Mumbai, my hometown in Rajasthan, or Delhi (where I will be only for a few hours–the time between arrival from Rajasthan and departing for the US)?

    Thanks much and best regards.

    Do I need to apply for TN e-pass ? I heard that TN govt removed e-pass req. early July for inter-district travel

    When do we have to fill the Air Suvidha form? I am travelling on Friday, October, 1st and I will hve my RT_PCR test done today.

    The RT_PCE test reports takes 24-48 hours to come back, so I can only fill Air Suvidha for then when I have the test results. That will be within 24-12 hours of my boarding. IS that time enough or should I fill the form without RT_PCR report now?

    My name is Bhadresh & I am planning to travel to Ahmedabad (IAD to AMD via Doha – Qatar Airways) – I am fully vaccinated as well. I am also planning to get the RT-PCR test done within 72 hrs – My questions are,

    1. Am I eligible for home quarantine? I am planning to travel by car from AMD to Surat.

    2. Which form should I fill up first (Self Declaration or Exemption ?)

    3. The Test results takes up to 48 hrs so – how am I going to fill up the form without test results (I guess I have to wait for the results before I fill out those forms) but not sure if that’s enough time for them to review my documentation & approve my exemption request.

    Thank you for your great support in this covid situation,

    Best Regards,
    Bhadresh

      Hi Bhadresh! Good morning to you too! Being asymptomatic and having a negative COVID-19 report from the US, you are not subject to home-quarantine at your destination. If you are traveling not in the exigency of death in family, you don’t need to fill out the exemption form. The only form you need to fill and submit on Air Suvidha is the self-declaration one, and that too after you receive the negative RT-PCR test report.

    5. What is the date of journey? The date I started in Dallas or London?
    6. My phone contact? Can I give my United States phone number?
    7. What is PNR? Is it Booking Ref Number?
    8. How much does the PCR Test cost? Do they accept credit card in BLR?

      Hi Ram! The US is your country of departure and Dallas of the city of origin. You can enter the Dallas-London flight number. The date of journey is the date you will board the flight from Dallas. You can give your US phone number. You will find the PNR on the ticket. It is not the booking reference number. A regular RT-PCR test costs nearly 800 rupees per person at BLR Airport.

    Hi, we are traveling from USA to Chennai (India) with a stop-over at Doha (Qatar airways) this November (OCI and PIO card holders).

    Question:
    Air Suvidha form requires to upload a negative covid-PCR test and that Air Suvidha needs to filled up 72 hours “before” departure. But the covid-PCR Test needs to be done “within” 72 hours of departure. How can I satisfy both these timelines, in that Air Suvidha should be completed 72 hours “before” departure, while PCR test should be done “within” 72 hours of departure?

    Can someone help me suggest, what would be the ideal timeline for PCR test and filling up Air Suvidha form?
    Will this be valid, take the PCR test 2.5 days prior to travel, and fill up Air-Suvidha 1.5 days prior to travel?

But Emirates are now delaying my connecting flight by 24 hrs. So will be able to take the connecting flight on 22 nd only. Will that affect the validity of my RTPCR as it would have been taken more than 72 hrs before the connecting flight from Dubai to Kochi

    Reply

      Hi Shalini! 72 hours is calculated prior to your first international flight from the UK, not the connecting flight from Dubai. If the connecting flight is delayed, the airline should be responsible for this, not you. Given the delay of the connecting flight, the health officers deployed at Kochi International Airport might need you to take an RT-PCR test on arrival.

    I received my first dose of Vaccine in India and 2 more doses in the USA. The 3rd dose was taken 5 days before my departure from USA. The Air Suvedha portal says I have to take the mandatory PCR test in Delhi since my last vaccine dose was within 15 days from the date of departure. Should I mention the fist dose as the “latest” dose in this case to get exemption from the PCR test?

        Hi Indian Eagle

        Two questions

        I am travelling to Mumbai via London on Virgin and will have our 1 year old with us

        1) I have read RT PCR test is not required for children less than 2 – so wanted to confirm with you that and also will that pose any problems on air suvidha

        2) Regarding air suvidha – how does that since it says to fill the form within 72 hours of departure. Can i fill the form and take the negative rt pcr tests results for me along with me or does it have to be uploaded.

        thanks.

          Hi Varun! Asymptomatic kids below 5 years of age are exempted from COVID-19 testing before and after arrival in India. Make sure to upload your kid’s passport copy (as his/her age proof) while filling out his/her details as a co-traveler in the self-declaration form on Air Suvidha. It is mandatory to upload the negative RT-PCR test reports alongside filling out a self-declaration form on Air Suvidha any time within 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure.

    Hi, we are travelling with 7 year and 1 year old kids. I found out that since last week Indian Govt waived RTPCR testing requirement for kids under 5…is it verified? how do i submit air suvidha form for my 1 year old who don’t have vaccination or rtpcr test report? also generally how long it takes to update the status after we submit the air suvidha form?

      Hi Joshi! It is right. Starting on NOV 12, 2021, asymptomatic kids under 5 years of age are exempted from taking an RT-PCR test before and after arrival in India. While filling out the self-declaration form with co-passenger details under – How many passengers are traveling? – you will be asked to upload your kids’ passport copies. The passport copy of the one-year-old will be his/her age proof, on the basis of which the kid will be exempted from taking an RT-PCR test.

      Hi Yasmin! Every neighborhood in India has a unique Pincode (postal index number code). The pincode for Delhi starts with 110001.

    Can one upload documentation of recovery from covid-19 to air suvidha portal? I know of someone who just recovered from COVID but they have to travel after 2 weeks. Their isolation has ended but I understand their RT-PCR test still might show a positive result. How does one deal with this?
    CDC in the US allows one to travel if one shows documentation of recovery from COVID from a licensed health officer along with other documents.

      Hi Nitai! There is no provision on Air Suvidha to upload a document of recovery from COVID-19.

    Hi, I am travelling to India after 8 days. I’ve two questions:

    1. I had COVID 3 weeks ago. Do I still need a PCR test? As per CDC guidelines, having COVID in last 90 days won’t need PCR test so confirming.

    2. My father had COVID 3 weeks ago and is symptom free but for some reason he still getting +ve result. As per CDC he is not contagious. Is he allowed to travel to India if gets +ve one more time before travel with any proof?

    Hello Indian Eagle,

    To add to my previous question. If I have two legs:

    SEA-DXB on Emirates EK 230 (20 December, arriving in Dubai 21 December)
    DXB-CCU on IndiGo 6E 28 (22 December morning)

    Would I need to test prior to the first leg or the second leg? Also which leg would I enter into Air Suvidha? In addition, I saw something on a site that says you need testing in your country of origin. Is that true?

    Thanks!

      Hi Neelanjan! You should take an RT-PCR test and upload a negative report on Air Suvidha within 72 hours prior to the first leg of the itinerary. You can enter details of the first leg. Your country of origin means the place you will start traveling. It means that you will take an RT-PCR test in Seattle.

    HI
    Can I get a regular PCR test or is it specifically an RT-PCR test that is required?
    It is not an antigen test.
    Thank you

    Hi, I am traveling with my family (wife and son). Had 2 questions?

    1. The Air Suvidha form allows you to add additional passengers which I did. However, when I got the PDF in email it only had 1 SR number for all three of us on the same form. Do I need to fill separate forms for each to get individual SR numbers?

    2. My son is 4 years so I am assuming I can leave the covid test upload field and vaccination card field blank as based on what I hear he is exempt.

    Thanks,
    DS

      Hi Swarup! No need to fill a separate self-declaration form for each of you if all of you have the same PNR. Yes, he is exempted from taking an RT-PCR test and vaccination is not mandatory for minors.

    We have booster shot on 11th June and arriving at Delhi from US on on 26th which is 15th day. Now its asking to book the PCR test as last shot was taken less then 15 days. should we put original date of 2nd shot or booster shot date in the vaccination record date? if PCR test shows for 8-10 hours do we need to stay at Delhi airport for 10 hours or we can go to next flight

    As per latest guidelines from MoFW (https://www.mohfw.gov.in/pdf/GuidelinesforInternationalArrival11thNovember2021.pdf), asymptotic children under 5 years are exempted from taking pre and post RT-PCR test enroute to India.

    But while filling Air Suvidha form, even after entering child’s date of birth, Date of RT-PCR test field remains mandatory with asterisk (*) mark. Not sure if we can submit the form without filling out RT-PCR test date for the child below 5 years.

    If I fly from the US and stay several days in France before going to India, do I list the US as the country of origin or do I list France?
