“Negative RT-PCR certificate not older than 72 hours shall be compulsorily produced by the passengers coming to Karnataka by flight, bus, train, taxi, personal transport, etc. This will also be applicable for all the flights originating from Kerala to Karnataka,” the order stated.
The state govt has also directed all the airlines to issue boarding passes only to passengers who carry a negative RT-PCR certificate not older than 72 hours.
