IMPACT – HIGH
The government of India has begun repatriating Indian nationals in cooperation with foreign governments. The massive repatriation that begun on May 7 aims to help over 200,000 Indian nationals return to India in phases.
Additional information: Requirements for repatriation to India include pre-departure screening (only asymptomatic individuals will be allowed to fly) and completion of an undertaking form. Following arrival in India, all repatriated individuals must download the Aarogya Setu app, undergo medical screening and 14-day supervised quarantine at their own cost. Repatriated Indian nationals are responsible for payment of all repatriation costs. The conditions for repatriation must be compelling (e.g., being laid off, medical emergencies, closure of educational institution where studying, short-term/non-permanent residency expiring).
Analysis & Comments: Some flights have already begun, and more flights will be made available during the coming days and weeks as India and other governments implement the phases of the repatriation operation.
