 India launches two repatriation flights from Bahrain

Two repatriation flights are set to depart from Bahrain to India in the coming days.

The Indian government is helping stranded workers return home from countries across the globe in a phased process that will begin on May 7.

According to a flight plan released by the Ministry of External Affairs, a flight from Bahrain International Airport will take 200 passengers to Kochi on May 8. On May 11, a second flight will take 200 passengers to Kozhikode.

Only passengers who are not showing symptoms will be allowed to board.

In a statement, the government of India said, “Indian Embassies and High Commissions are preparing a list of distressed Indian citizens.

“This facility would be made available on payment-basis.”

After touching down in India, repatriated citizens must register on the Arogya Setu app, and will then be medically screened.

They will then need to spend 14 days quarantined in a hospital or in an institutional quarantine on a payment-basis, before taking a coronavirus test once two weeks have passed.

You can find out more information on the repatriation flights on the Ministry of External Affairs and the

Ministry of Civil Aviation websites, or by contacting the Indian embassy in Bahrain.
