Delhi Airport in collaboration with the Ministry of Civil Aviation has introduced Air Suvidha to make international arrival process easier with a contactless solution. “To make the journey more convenient and comfortable, we have introduced Self-Reporting and Exemption Forms for all international arriving passengers for a contactless and hassle-free journey. Therefore, all international arriving passengers coming to India can apply online through Delhi Airport,” it mentioned on its website. 

“Delhi Airport has developed an online system for passengers to submit mandatory Self-Declaration form/Self-Reporting Form to declare their current health status. There is no such time capping for the Self Reporting Form. The mandatory self-reporting application will be forwarded to the Airport Health Organisation (APHO) under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. Passengers can then refer to their email inbox for the updated application document. Using the Self Reporting application’s request number, passengers can auto-fill the application for exemption or vice versa,” it added.
