The Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) has set a few rules for international travellers planning a trip to India. These travellers need to comply with all the rules that have been set by the relevant authorities to ensure that there is no penalty or criminal action taken against them. Further, not following the rules might result in no travel in the first place as the airlines will not entertain people who are complying with the rules.

MOCA had announced a set of fresh rules on January 7, 2022, that came into implementation from January 11, 2022. Note that the rules for each country are different based on whether they are in the ‘at risk’ or ‘no-risk’ category. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is not on the at-risk list of India. These are the things and rules that you need to remember if you are travelling from UAE to India.
