No RT-PCR Test Require For Fully Vaccinated Passengers to West Bengal


The West Bengal government on Monday made it announced that it will not require the mandatory negative RT-PCR test report for all inbound flight passengers if they are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Passengers can either produce their vaccination certificates, indicating that they have received both the jabs of the COVID-19 vaccine, or they have to carry a negative RT-PCR report, with the test conducted within 72 hours of flight departure.

“Attention Passengers traveling to West Bengal! All in-bound flight passengers that are carrying proof of having received two doses of the covid vaccine do not require an RT-PCR test report,” said the Ministry of Civil Aviation in a Tweet.

Earlier, it was compulsory for all passengers coming from outside the state of West Bengal to carry a Covid negative RTPCR report conducted within 72 hours before flight departure


This new RT-PCR test rule will come into effect immediately.

State Additional Chief Secretary BP Gopalika has requested the Ministry of Civil Aviation to issue necessary instructions for implementing the order.
