Regarding the Omicron variant, the government has made changes in the rules related to coming to India for international travelers. The revised guidelines regarding this have become effective after 12 pm that is from December 1.

Airport screening has been made mandatory for passengers coming from countries placed in the risk category. In such a situation, passengers may also have to wait a long time for the result of their RTPCR test.

The company doing RTPCR test of Corona at the airport can do 400-500 tests in an hour. But efforts are being made to increase the testing capacity.

However, not a single case of Omicron has come up in the country so far. In this case, the Government of Maharashtra has said that all international travelers coming from countries “at risk” of the Omicron variant will have to compulsorily stay in Quarantine for seven days. The orders to compulsorily keep the passengers in isolation will be implemented immediately.
