A Qantas flight to bring home Australians stranded in India will land in Canberra on Friday morning.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has organised four flights to depart India between May 14 and 20.
There are 207 passengers who are expected to land in the ACT on one of the repatriation flights.
All those passengers will have to undertake mandatory 14-day quarantine in a Canberra hotel.
The flight from Delhi will arrive in Canberra on Friday morning, while another flight will be landing in Brisbane on the same day.
Many passengers on the flight have reportedly been quarantining in India prior to their departure on the chartered flight.
Ongoing monitoring and mental health and wellbeing support will be provided to passengers by ACT Health, including daily check-ins.
All passengers will have to undergo health screening before boarding the flight, and again on arrival at Canberra Airport.
Repatriation flights from India will also land in Melbourne on Tuesday and Sydney on Wednesday.
Regular international flights from Singapore and Qatar airlines have stopped leaving Canberra and the domestic service is pared down.
After the airport closed for two days in the middle of April, the terminal reopened with limited flights to Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Newcastle.
