After clearance from the immigration centre, passports of the passengers will be collected by the immigration counter after which the passengers will be handed over to the CISF for escorting them. Their passports will be also handed over to the CISF team. Before heading for the quarantine centre, the passengers would be allowed to collect their baggage from the customs.
