In order to combat the spreading of coronavirus, the Indian government has issued an order prohibiting all inbound international flights to India from March 22, 2020, to March 29, 2020. This span can be changed if required.
This means that the said prohibition applies to all travelers including Indian citizens settled abroad or traveling from abroad to India.
Employers may wish to take into consideration the cautiousness and the possibility of international travel at this time.
Apart from India, several other countries have imposed travel restrictions around the world, visa appointments have been canceled resulting in a person traveling abroad being unable to return to the United States for a lengthy period.
For any grounded Indian citizens in the USA holding US visas, the employers may need to consider alternate ways of falling options to avoid potential status violations.
