In order to slow down the spread of COVID-19, India has prolonged both the suspension of international commercial flights as well as the country’s lockdown until the 3rd of May 2020.

Exceptions can be made for international cargo or with permission from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, but when it comes to commercial passenger flights,

no incoming scheduled international flights are allowed to enter the country.

Individuals with stay permits or visas that will expire between February 2nd and April 30th are allowed to extend them for free until the 30th of April 2020.

Free consular services have temporarily been granted to foreign nationals who have been stranded in India due to the travel restrictions.
