Posted on: May 16, 2020 | Back | Print

The Embassy is in the process of finalizing list of Indian nationals in distress who wish to return to India and exploring possibilities for their evacuation via Frankfurt, Germany. In this regard, please fill the details placed below and send to the undersigned by 1500 Hrs tomorrow i.e. 17.5.2020. Those who had already send them last week need not send again.

Those wishing to return will have to make their own arrangements and reach Frankfurt in order to board the Air India flight from Frankfurt to a particular destination airport in India. A request will be considered against a particular destination airport in India only if the said person is domiciled in the corresponding State as crossing of State borders is to be avoided during the mandatory quarantine period.
