The petitioner Pravasi Legal Cell, represented by Advocate MP Srivignesh, submitted that the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare issued guidelines for international arrivals on Jan. 7, 2022, including protocols to be followed by overseas travelers as well as airlines and all points of entry (airports, seaports and land border).
