    The only way you can get to India right now is through VANDE BHARAT MISSION VANDE BHARAT MISSION FLIGHTS Quarantine is around 7 - 14 days depending on your test results.

    One of my relatives recently returned to India for medical reasons and was allowed to do a home quarantine because of his health. But it was a special circumstance. My cousin has not been able to travel even for his mother’s last rites.

    Thanks for this query OP.
    I was looking for some answers for my friend.
    @MalStrom, what was the medical condition of your relative? One of my friend is pregnant and want to go to India for delivery. She can't bring her parents here and she is trying to go. Don't know if that comes under air India VBM criteria.

    In Kerala, quarantine period is 14 days and after that you still have to be stay home or wherever you are for another 14 days in order to get the covid -ve certificate. So 28 no socilaization.

    What is your status in US ( if you are in US)? Also check with embassy or AI. You might have to tell the emergency. I know some people travelling for parents sickness/emergencies via same AI VBM flights.
    If you are in good health, then you will be home quarantine i guess. Also, I think locally, for port of entry airport to city of destination, you will need to take their arrange transport like flights etc. But i think calling them or email would give you latest info.
    their flights do not run full load so they always have seats.
    Also indian citizen/ medical emergencies ups you in priority.
    Other thing - Now they have allowed United Airlines flights too. And probably LH was in plans too. so please check.

    I wouldn’t advice a pregnant lady to step into a flight right now. Especially a long haul. Encourage her to research and see how people have managed without help. Lots of ILites have done that too.
