India makes negative RT-PCR test report, 14-day travel details mandatory for international passengers from Dec 1
The Union health ministry has revised guidelines for international arrivals in India which will come into effect from December 1. Under the revised guidelines, international passengers entering India have to submit 14-days travel details and upload negative RT-PCR test report on Air Suvidha portal before the journey.
Travellers from ‘countries at-risk’ will need to take the Covid test post-arrival and wait for results at the airport, according to health ministry guidelines.
If tested negative, they have to undergo home quarantine for seven days followed by a re-test on the eighth day. If the test again yields a negative result, they will have to further self-monitor for the next seven days.
“Travellers from countries excluding those ‘countries at risk’ will be allowed to leave airport and shall self-monitor health for 14 days’ post arrival. A sub-section (5% of total flight passengers) shall undergo post-arrival testing at random at the airport on arrival,” the guidelines state.
