    Asking for a friend, can senior Indian citizens with underlying health conditions travel from India to USA during this panademic period? They are depressed and badly want to come over for a few months even though their kids are not for it.I heard they need to register some where online. Have any of your family members belonging to the above category travelled recently ? What’s the procedure and plz share your experience.

    What is the plan if they happen to fall sick in the US, assuming they can travel?

    So far their kids have sponsored their medications when they ran out.Money has never been a concern.One of their elders recently recovered from a life threatening disease but needs a check up may be 2-3 times a year.I don’t know how they plan to manage if something goes wrong with their health.My friends are not encouraging them to travel but are stressed as they have tiny tots at home.They fear risk of infection. I got the picture that they are adamant to travel.

    So they’re willing to risk bankrupting themselves if the parents need a hospital stay here? One of my relatives had a $100,000 bill after he needed emergency surgery in the US while he was visiting and the insurance didn’t cover.

    All I know is they are pressured. One of their son is for it while is other is being diplomatic and both their dils are going nuts.As an outsider I feel it’s more a Saas-Bahu war during panademic. I hope God gives them some sense.

    One of my far relatives 90yrs old also travelled to their daughter in US, do not know why .
    If they have visa, they need to look for AI VB flights or may be United Airlines and Lufthansa also opened but direct flight is good anyways.

    I understand their desperation and living alone, like world is ending and we want to be with someone.
    1. Stay put at one place is the safest way
    2. Travel is very hard. AI VBM flight is horrible. I did recently. So considering their age and understanding procedure etc
    3. Then once they reach safely, they will get bored soon with in few months. Also winter will start soon when they will be stuck at home and no social life. All dark, again they will be restless.

    I completely understand their life. In india, TV/ news everything they have scared people like hell. Intent might be good. But news/adverstiments everything is about corona. Then on the top, crimes happening because of frustations etc.
    Here since life is almost back of normal, people are much busy with kids, jobs and routine so we do not find much time to go through cases like in india. My father is also frustated like that.
    Also, with warm weather, people atleast walk here, go out. it is not strict like in india.
