According Times of India, the exception to the suspension indicates personnel from agencies like WHO or UN and those held to be important for Indian firms or government projects are being distinguished from tourists and other travellers. Visa-free travel facility to Overseas Citizen of India cardholders will be in abeyance till the same date and a foreign national seeking to travel to India have to state a compelling reason to an Indian mission.

The decisions were announced after a group of ministers headed by health minister Harsh Vardhan met to review and take stock of the Covid-19 situation domestically and abroad. Though the numbers in India are going up incrementally, the spread of the virus to more than 100 countries spurred the government’s decision to opt for a “nuclear” response to the threat by significantly isolating India.
