Embassy of India



Advisory (01.05.2020)

There is lot of speculation based on news reports about quick commencement of special flights for Indian nationals. Embassy will provide updates as soon as we have them, after a consolidated decision has been taken at the political level. Please don’t go entirely by news reports. We are there to give you authentic updates specific for Ireland. Some Embassies have floated registration forms in anticipation like we did several weeks ago. Our Embassy will circulate a fresh registration form for those desirous of returning to India once we have all details which will enable more informed decision making. Govt of India is deliberating on many issues- self financing/ screening/ testing/ quarantine in India etc. But we have to just wait for the final decision - which should come soon. Besides, repatriation is likely to be in phases, with prioritization for countries where the numbers are large. Embassy has made a strong case for Ireland. The repatriation from across the world will be a gigantic, unprecedented logistics exercise for GOI in coordination with State Govts, Min/ Home Affairs; Min/ Health, Min/ External Affairs and Embassies. Additionally, some State Govts have reportedly started their own registration process,which would be for their own planning process like arranging quarantine facilities, etc. Embassy is not directly associated with this process.

Please continue to watch this space for updates, as available with us. It is our endeavour to offer the most efficient services as practical, with your collective support.
