India has announced the removal of the need for travelers vaccinated against Covid-19 from the U.S., U.K. and 80 other countries to quarantine on arrival, beginning Feb. 14.

In other changes to its Covid-19 testing requirements, the country will accept a certificate proving full vaccination in place of a negative PCR test. Travelers must also submit a declaration on the authenticity of the vaccination status.

The moves replace the previously required seven-day home quarantine and instead a 14-day health self-monitoring period will be in place. India has also removed the need for a PCR test on the eighth day after arrival in India.

Full guidelines are available via India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
