According to officials, The Civil Aviation Ministry has told the airlines that travelers who submit a self-declaration form saying that they have not tested positive for COVID-19 during the three weeks before the departure date are allowed to take their flight.

On May 21, the government said it is mandatory for all passengers to submit the self-declaration form before a flight stating that they did not test positive for Covid-19 for 2 months before the date of departure.

The officials informed PTI that a majority of people in India have recovered from the deadly corona-virus. Now, It is necessary to update the self-declaration to avoid difficulties for travelers.

So, a few days ago, the government issued updated declaration form stating that:

  • The passengers need to give a declaration that “they have not tested positive for Covid-19 in the last three weeks” prior to the flight.
  • Persons who have recovered from Covid-19 and who fulfil the three-week criteria will be allowed to travel by flights if they show a Covid-recovery or Covid-discharge certificate from their hospital.

However, around 5.15 lakh people have recovered from around 8.12 lakh people who have tested positive for Covid-19.

This shows that the recovery rate is around 63 percent. More than 22,000 people have died because of coronavirus in India.

India resumed domestic flights on May 25 after a two-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Planned international passenger flights remain suspended in the country until further notice.
