Full-service carrier Vistara on Sunday issues an advisory for all passengers travelling from the United Kingdom to India and advised not to use NHS (National Health Service) Testing Services to get an RT-PCR test.
Vistara asks its passengers to take private tests instead of NHS testing services to avoid any type of issues while boarding.
“Passengers travelling from the United Kingdom to India are advised not to use NHS testing service to get a RT-PCR test in order to facilitate their travel and are advised to take a private test. Failure to comply may result in denied boarding at departure. Kindly visit airvistara.com or the official UK government website for detailed information.”Vistara Said in a Tweet
It must be noted that the Govt of India on Wednesday issued new guidelines for all international travellers, particularly at-risk travellers to India through a multi-pronged strategy of thermal screening and testing.
“To reduce the risk of importation of mutant strains of SARS-CoV-2, SOP for international passengers arriving in India have been updated; new SOP will be in effect on 23:59 hrs on 22nd Feb” said the Ministry of Civil Aviation
