After nearly two years, India is reopening to foreign tourism as COVID-19 restrictions have been eased.

Starting November 15, fully vaccinated foreign tourists on regular commercial flights will be able to enter India quarantine-free. With the requirement of a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before departure, travelers from around 99 reciprocating countries will be allowed entry. While in the country, the Indian government requires tourists to monitor their health for 14 days after arrival in the country.

Among the countries included on the list of 99 countries are Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom, Qatar, France, and Germany.

The reopening of India's borders comes after a 20-month suspension of the issuance of entry for foreign tourists during the initial outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020.
