India has recently announced that it will drop quarantine and testing for travelers. This is according to the revised guidelines for International passengers entering India from February 14.
Tourism was reopened in India starting in 2021; however, due to the rise of Omicron cases, India placed a mandatory 7-day quarantine and testing on arrival for all international travelers.
