But the good news is, Indians can skip quarantine in certain countries now if they are fully inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccines approved by these nations. Here is a list of 5 such countries:

1. Ireland

Ireland has resumed the issuance of short-stay entry visas for Indians. For those who intend to travel, Ireland Visa Application Centres (VAC) in India are now accepting these short-stay applications. Only those who have taken both doses of the Covishield vaccine can apply for entry visas. Also, they do not need to undergo quarantine upon reaching Ireland.
