Flying to Maharashtra Government Issues New Travel Guidelines For Flyers To The State
The Maharashtra government has issued a new guideline for flyers to the state. If you have taken both the shots of the COVID-19 vaccine then you can enter the state without showing a negative Covid-19 test (RT-PCR) report at the airport. This will be applicable for all domestic and international passengers travelling to the state.
The announcement was made by the state government on Thursday. As per the statement released, “Persons who have been vaccinated with both the doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and 15 days have lapsed since the administration of the second dose of vaccine and is in possession of a final vaccination certificate issued through the COWIN portal then such person is exempted from the mandatory requirement of possessing a negative RTPCR report on their entry into the State.”
But the state government has added that all passengers must follow Covid appropriate behaviour at all times.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had requested the Maharashtra government to exempt the RT-PCR negative test report stipulation for passengers arriving in the state if they are fully vaccinated. The BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal had written to the Chief Secretary of Maharashtra and recommended that fully vaccinated people arriving in Mumbai can be exempted from the mandatory RT-PCR test.
Maharashtra’s coronavirus caseload rose to 61,89,257 with the addition of 8,010 new infections on Thursday. The death toll has reached 1,26,560 after 170 patients succumbed to respiratory illness.
