Mumbai has withdrawn the additional restrictions mandated for passengers flying into the city from the United Arab Emirates, including Dubai.

The new guidelines will come into effect from January 17, the civic body said. In its earlier order, the civic body had made mandatory 7-day quarantine and RT-PCR test on arrival of passengers coming from UAE.

Official notification issued by BMC said, "No special SOP henceforth will be applicable for passengers coming from UAE, including Dubai. Guidelines applicable to international travellers arriving from countries other than countries at-risk will be made applicable to travellers arriving from UAE,"

The decision to lift the additional surveillance on people arriving from Dubai was taken at a virtual meeting of civic officials, where it was discussed that Mumbai has reached its peak of the third wave.

Meanwhile, as per the latest guidelines issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, which came into effect from January 11, all international passengers will have to undergo a seven-day home quarantine.

If the trend of decline continues, the state government will consider reopening the schools after the next 10-15 days.

"Demands are rising from certain quarters for reopening of schools as children are suffering the education loss. We will consider it after 10-15 days as there is a low (rate of) infection among children. The chief minister will take the final call in this regard,"
