On May 15, government-chartered repatriation flights will begin for Australians returning from India. There will be 3 flights offered between May 15 and the end of June, with one flight offered every 7-9 days, for an estimated 1,000 Australians total. The most vulnerable Australians will be prioritized for these select flights.

Passengers will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test and a negative Rapid Antigen test before boarding.

The current ban on direct commercial flights between Australia and India remains in effect.
