Maharashtra Government has announced that all the guidelines issued by Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will be applicable for all international passengers entering in the state. A statement has been issued by the State Government stating that the orders issued from time to time by the Central Government will come into effect from today.
The State Government has issued a statement saying that if a person traveling internationally has completed even both doses of the vaccine, as per the Central Government rules, it is mandatory for the person to undergo a RT-PCR test.
Chief Secretary Sitaram Kunte issued an order in this regard yesterday. Earlier, persons vaccinated with both the doses of COVID-19 vaccine were not required to submit a negative RT-PCR report while entering in Maharashtra. Relaxations were given to both domestic and international passengers.
While for those passengers who have not received any dose of vaccine or got the first dose, they were required to produce a negative RT-PCR report not older than 72 hours.
