Students face issues with travel to foreign countries amid COVID-19 restrictions
The Centre has decided to take account of students who are unable to join or return to foreign countries to pursue higher education amid the restrictions due to COVID-19, and has asked them to reach out to the Union external ministry.
"We are aware of the challenges being faced by the Indian students who are unable to join or return to foreign countries to pursue their studies. We have been taking this issue up with the governments concerned on priority. We have also requested the students facing difficulties to contact the MEA," the ministry’s spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said during an online briefing.
Different countries have released their set of guidelines for international students arriving to pursue higher education.
Fully vaccinated students arriving in Ireland will be exempted from mandatory quarantine. Whereas, Canada has advised students to get vaccinated with World Health Organisation (WHO)-approved jabs.
Students arriving in the UK will have to undergo mandatory 10-day quarantine, and it has increased to 14 days for Canada.
