International passengers must schedule RT-PCR tests in advance at centers

The Centre made it mandatory for international travelers arriving in India to book an RT-PCR test in advance. Passengers arriving at six major Indian airports would be forced to schedule their tests in advance. If passengers are coming from “AT-RISK” countries or have visited such countries in the last 14 days, the “Air Suvidha” portal will be modified to allow them to pre-book the tests.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoA) and the Indian Railways (IRS) have issued a memorandum to implement a pre-booking system in the first phase for Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad. On the Air Suvidha platform, a link to the relevant airport website will be shown to travelers when they fill out the self-declaration form (SDF). On December 20, the new system is set to be in place.

The memorandum also mentions that in the event of any passenger having any difficulty in pre-booking, he/she may not be denied boarding, but it would be the responsibility of the airlines to identify and accompany such passengers to the registration counter at the airport for testing.

India’s new list of at-risk countries:

  • Countries in Europe, including the United Kingdom
  • South Africa
  • Brazil
  • Botswana
  • China
  • Ghana
  • Mauritius
  • New Zealand
  • Zimbabwe
  • Tanzania
  • Hong Kong
  • Israel
