Hydroquinone is banned in some countries. In India it's still available for don't use it for more than 4weeks. You can use kojic acid based cream for a month too. It's better to be on sunscreen, vitamins c serums and milder agents if you want to use around eyes or longer use.

you can have proper consultation with dermatologist about how long and to find other options
