Int’l Travellers Have To Upload Repeat RT-PCR Report On Air Suvidha App | Check New Guidelines

New Delhi: In view of the new international travel guidelines implemented in the nation, the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) on Saturday said that all overseas travellers to India will have to upload their repeat RT-PCR test on the Air Suvidha portal on the eighth day, after the seven days mandatory home quarantine period.

MoCA designed and launched the Air Suvidha platform in August 2020.

The ministry further said that the Air Suvidha is a contactless and self-declaration digital platform that includes data that passengers must fill out in accordance with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare rules.

Taking to Twitter, MoCA said, “Please note that there is no fee charged on the Air Suvidha portal. Air Suvidha is the only platform for filling the self-declaration form as prescribed by the guidelines of MoHFW. Don’t click on any other URL which may mislead you or pay any fee.”

“Air Suvidha is a user-friendly platform. Passengers can easily fill-up the form. Keep the required information ready while entering the information. Air Suvidha Portal can also be accessed on your mobile. Self-declaration form on the portal can be filled anytime before boarding,” the ministry further adds.

As per the fresh guidelines, if the traveller tests negative on the eighth day, they will have to monitor their health for the next seven days.

‘At-Risk’ Nation

Previously, only travellers from “at-risk” nations were subject to isolation.

Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, and Zambia are among the 19 ‘at risk’ nations listed by the administration. The list previously includes the United Kingdom, South Africa, Brazil, Botswana, China, Ghana, Mauritius, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Hong Kong, and Israel.

All visitors from these countries must submit to required RT-PCR testing upon arrival. They must wait for the findings at the airport before departing.
