Check in process

All International arriving passengers are being screened by APHO using ten counters. Passengers are advised to fill up the self reporting form in the flight before disembarking and mandated to submit it to APHO at the time of screening.
After being cleared by APHO, passengers are expected to show the CISF that they’ve downloaded the app before they can proceed to immigration. Passengers are encouraged to download the Aarogya Setu app at their destination point.

Self reporting forms to be filled in duplicate and stamped by Health officers at the counter. One form needs to be submitted at the Health counter and the other at the Immigration counter.
Passengers can avail of a local sim card at the counter stationed after the health counter of screening. A forex counter will be stationed there as well 

On arrival, all passengers are requested to move towards immigration. We conduct immigration check for all passengers, Indians or foreigners, both at the time of arrival and departure. The passports are duly stamped at the arrival as well as departure. Passengers should ensure that their passports are duly stamped before leaving the immigration counter. Only Foreigners coming to India are required to fill-up D (Disembarkation) Card. Passengers are required to present valid travel documents i.e. passport and visa (if applicable) before proceeding for immigration clearance.

If inadvertently, an immigration stamp is not affixed by the counter officer at the immigration check-post, the passenger may immediately contact the concerned FRRO/FRO/SSP and get the same affixed on his/her passport to avoid inconvenience at the time of next travel abroad.
