The same exemption has been granted to government of India personnel on bona fide duty and to passengers with a COVID negative certificate issued from an ICMR approved lab not older than 48 hours before the arrival date.

Such categories of travellers will be directly sent for 14 home quarantine after taking their samples on arrival.
