    The government today imposed a blanket ban on passengers visiting India from European Union, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey and the United Kingdom, with effect from March 18.
    The measures are being taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus outbreak in India, which has seen more than 100 cases.
    "No airline shall board a passenger from these nations to India," a notification by the Health Ministry said.
    It also expanded its 14-day quarantine rule to all passengers coming from UAE, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait.
    Previously, the government had imposed a mandatory quarantine for passengers coming from China, Italy, Iran, Republic of Korea, France, Spain, and Germany.
    "Both these instructions are temporary measures and shall be in force till 31st March 2020 and will be reviewed subsequently," the notification said.
