Air India has released a list of mandatory negative Covid-19 RT-PCR medical test requirements on its blog.

Passengers travelling from India to the UAE have been asked not to submit hand-written RT-PCR test results to airport authorities as these will not be accepted by civil aviation and health authorities in UAE or India, Air India said in its recent blog update.

The airline has released a list of mandatory negative Covid-19 RT-PCR medical test requirements on its blog.

First, the negative Covid-19 RT-PCR medical test result should only be taken from Indian Council of Medical Research, Pure Health, or Micro Health accredited laboratories.

Second, the test result should be issued, duly signed and stamped in the original letterhead of the testing lab. Third, the test result should not be handwritten or have corrections.

It added, “Kindly note that photocopies of the results will not be accepted.” The mandatory 96-hour time frame begins from the time, date the swab, or sample was collected for test. True NAT/CB-NAAT methodology is not being accepted and only nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swab test analysed by Real-Time RT-PCR is accepted.”
