Six Indian Airports have made it mandatory for International Passengers arriving from ‘at-risk’ countries to prebook RT-PCR Test. This move comes after the Civil Aviation Ministry issued instructions last week to contain the spread of coronavirus.
As per the reports, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad are the airports that have made it mandatory to prebook the RT-PCR test.
The government also issued a notification stating that the Air Suvidha Portal will be modified to accommodate passengers from ‘at-risk’ countries or who have visited there within the last 14 days.
The ministry clarified that this is the first stage of protocol implementation, and once the system is stabilized, this facilitates the passengers in prebooking procedures. Once set, the rule will be extended to other airports as well.
Steps to prebook RT-PCR test:
- Visit the official website of the International Airport that you want to travel to.

- After this, one needs to book which type of test.
- Following these instructions, one needs to book a slot for RT-PCR testing upon arrival and present the details.
