Take Covid test to avoid paid quarantine in India

The move was undertaken to relieve the financial pressure of a paid quarantine on passengers.

The RT-PCR negative test report that allows passengers travelling from UAE to India to avoid paid quarantine is not mandatory, but is highly recommended, according to an advisory issued by the Consulate General of India in Dubai on Monday.

On August 3, India's Ministry of Health & Family Welfare revised its guidelines, permitting travellers with a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test report to seek exemption from the mandatory seven-day institutional quarantine.

The test would need to be no more than 96 hours old and be presented upon arrival.

Under the 'Air Suvidha' portal, passengers could register on www.newdelhiairport.in, fill up the online declaration and upload their RT-PCR test.
Subject to approval, the passenger would then be allowed to proceed directly to their home for home quarantine.

The move was undertaken to relieve the financial pressure of a paid quarantine on passengers, while also easing the burden on state authorities catering to a large number of incoming passengers from overseas.

The statement issued by the Consulate in Dubai noted that taking the test will "undoubtedly make travel safer" for passengers, thus helping both UAE and India in the fight against the spread of Covid-19.

It reiterated that all passengers travelling from UAE to India are advised to carry the RT-PCR negative test report, even though it is not mandatory.
