Fully vaccinated travellers in India can now avail the benefits in domestic travelling. Government is now planning to stop mandatory RT-PCR tests for travellers if they have completed the process of vaccination.

As India continues to see a decline in the number of COVID-19 daily cases, a new route map is being prepared for safe travel.

Civil Avition Minister, Hardeep Singh Puri said in a statement, "A joint team from several ministries and stakeholders, including the Health Department, are in discussion to take a final decision on allowing travelling by air without an RT-PCR test for those who have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine."


Now, for domestic travel you need to get RT-PCR test done, and show negative report before travelling. Health experts are also working with the government to help determine whether fully vaccinated people can travel with RT-PCR test reports.

Puri also said that health is a state subject, and it is up to the state to ask passengers for a negative RT-PCR test report before entering the state.

Union Health Minister, Harsh Vardhan, stated during the G7 countries’ meeting, "With vaccine coverage as a percentage of population in developing countries is still low compared to developed countries, such an initiative could prove to be highly discriminatory."
