As India reported two cases of Omicron, Maharashtra has revised its travel restrictions. According to revised guidelines, passengers arriving from three ‘high-risk’ countries – South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana – are required to undergo a mandatory RT-PCR test immediately on arrival, as well as a seven-day institutional quarantine.

They have to remain institutional quarantined until their second RT-PCR test is conducted on the seventh day. If the report comes positive, they would be shifted to a hospital. While passengers with negative test reports would be home quarantined for seven days.

For domestic travellers, the state government revoked their earlier imposed rule mandating a negative RT-PCR test report for domestic arrivals irrespective of their vaccination status. Now, fully vaccinated passengers will be allowed to travel to Maharashtra. But if a person is partially or unvaccinated, they have to carry a negative RT-PCR test report within 72 hours before boarding.
