Travellers arriving from Kerala, who have a vaccination certificate of having received at least one dose of the covid-19 vaccine will be exempted from producing a negative RT-PCR certificate in the state of Karnataka.

The Karnataka government on Thursday said travellers from Kerala will be exempted from producing negative RT-PCR reports with at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine certificate, as the state has introduced special surveillance measures for people coming from Kerala.

Earlier in its order on Thursday, the Karnataka government has mandated the production of RT-PCR negative more than 72 hours old or at least one dose vaccination certificate for passengers entering the state from Kerala by rail, road or air was made mandatory. The state has taken special surveillance measures in view of the Delta variant of covid-19 being reported from several districts of Kerala.

However, exemptions have been provided to those who have received both doses of the covid-19 vaccine, constitutional functionaries, health workers and children below two years of age. 

In case of serious emergencies like death in the family and medical needs, passengers will be allowed without these requirements even after collecting their swabs with identity details.
