The contact-tracing application, however, will not be compulsory for children below 14 years of age.

Apart from registering on the Aarogya Setu app, the guidelines also encourage users to embrace digital payment modes and e-documents.

“A self-declaration/ Aarogya Setu App status would also be obtained stating that the passenger is free of Covid-19 symptoms. Passengers with “red” status on the Aarogya Setu app would not be permitted to travel,” said the guidelines.

“In case of non-availability of Aarogya Setu app, the passenger should be facilitated to go to a counter provided by the airport where Aarogya setu can be downloaded,” it said.
