Under “Unlock 3”, international travel remains prohibited, the only flights operating internationally are those that bring back stranded Indian citizens. But the Center gradually relaxed the restrictions and allowed some foreigners like OICs to enter India. .
The Home Office has allowed OCI cardholders to enter India who belong to countries with which “air bubble” agreements have been finalized by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. @ HMOIndia @PIB_India @airnewsalerts @DDNewslive

The Home Office said Indian missions based in these travel bubble countries will grant visas, but decisions will be based on papers provided by applicants. These travelers will also be exempt from the existing restrictions that other passengers in India have been subjected to at immigration checkpoints. The Home Office has also said it may ease visa and travel restrictions for more categories of foreigners wishing to travel to India.
The ministry said that any Indian with any visa from any of these countries will be allowed to travel to the country, provided, of course, that the destination country does not impose any travel restrictions on Indian citizens. So check before you book a ticket.
