Advisory on Government of India plan to facilitate return of Indian Nationals stranded in Canada

Government of India is planning to facilitate the return of Indians stranded abroad due to COVID-19 pandemic in a phased manner. This facility would be made available on payment basis through non-scheduled commercial flights.

Medical screening of passengers would be done before embarkation.  Only asymptomatic passengers would be allowed to travel. During the journey, all these passengers would have to follow the health protocols and other guidelines, issued by Government of India agencies.

On reaching the destination, all arrivals must register on the ArogyaSetu App and be medically screened.  After scrutiny, they would be quarantined for 14 days, either in a hospital or in an institutional quarantine on payment basis, by the State Government concerned.  COVID test would be done after 14 days and further action would be taken according to health protocols.

As a contingency planning exercise, the High Commission of India in Canada and Consulates General of India in Toronto and Vancouver are preparing a list of distressed Indian citizens in Canada. If you are an Indian national in Canada with compelling reasons to travel to India, please register yourself by filling up the information sheet at the given link - https://bit.ly/2Wtmv3A.  This will allow us to add you to the list and keep you informed of further developments.  In case you have already filled your particulars on a form sent earlier to you by the Consulate General of India, Toronto, please be advised that we have already registered you, however, as abundant precaution, we suggest you may wish to fill the above form afresh to ensure that the information provided by you is up-to-date and complete.
