On 16-03-2020 Government of India Ministry of Health & FW issued additional Travel Advisory for Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) as follows:

(i) Expanding compulsory quarantine for a minimum period of 14 days for passengers coming from/transiting through UAE, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait. This will come into effect from 1200 GMT on 18th March 2020 at the port of first departure. 

(ii) Travel of passengers from member countries of the European Union, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey and United Kingdom to India is prohibited with effect from 18th March 2020. No airline shall board a passenger from these nations to India with effect from 1200 GMT on 18th March 2020. The airline shall enforce this at the port of initial departure.

(iii) Both these instructions are temporary measures and shall be in force till 31st March 2020 and will be reviewed subsequently.

As the flights from Panama and Costa Rica to Europe and Asia are not operating, the Indian nationals stuck in Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are advised to explore alternate routes in such a way that they do not have to come out of the immigration area of the transit country. Also the journey should be made on single ticket to avoid hassles with the baggage.

In case of emergency, it is advised to contact 00507-62212065/ email: cons.panama@mea.gov.in
