Latest update- Air Travel Bubble between India and Japan to mark an entry

With the Unlock mode in place, India has grabbed eyeballs for the measures it has been taking to ensure the new normal is a smooth process. Recently, with many countries opening up their borders, India has been making conscious efforts in terms of establishing air bubbles. With Indians residing in various countries across the globe, the Vande Bharat scheme and air travel bubbles have proven to be a relief. One of the newest countries to get added to this list of India’s air travel bubble partners is Japan. Let’s now have a look at what is possible as part of this air travel bubble arrangement.

India totally has 13 countries under this scheme, and the addition of Japan comes as a huge advantage. Aircrafts can now be operated to and from Japan and this is said to benefit a lot of Indian citizens living abroad. Japanese nationals who are stranded in India with a valid visa will be allowed to travel to Japan through the air bubble. Safety measures and restrictions will have to be adhered to upon arrival and the respective airlines will have to ensure the same before granting a boarding pass or ticket to the traveller.
