As of June 2021, all regularly scheduled international flights remain suspended. Further information can be found on the government website.

From 23 April 2021, visitors who have been in or transited through India in the previous 10 days cannot enter the UK.

Covid-19 antigen tests are not accepted for those travelling to India from the UK. Alternatively, you can test for Covid-19 using one of our PCR test kits which must be taken no more than 72 hours before departing the UK. Failure to provide a negative Covid-19 test may result in travellers being refused entry to India.

From 4am on Monday 4 October 2021, the rules for international travel to England have changed from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world. The rules for travel from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travellers can book a day 2 test with free delivery. Not fully vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers can book their return antigen tests and day 2 and 8 travel packages with Medicspot. Further details can be found on our Covid test page.
