SHARES

In view of the current spike in instances of coronavirus, the Maharashtra government on Wednesday, April 28, further tightened the restrictions with regards to coronavirus, with public and private transport now allowed only for essential services and emergencies and 14-day mandatory home quarantine for people travelling inter-district.

However, one of the questions people have been asking time and again is what are the restrictions or procedure one has to follow after landing in Mumbai from different parts of the country?

According to reports, out of all airports in Maharashtra, only six airports are welcoming flyers, namely Aurangabad, Pune, Shirdi, Nagpur, Mumbai and Kolhapur. Citizens should further note that both domestic, as well as international passengers arriving at any of the airports in Maharashtra, will be thermally screened. If found symptomatic, they will have to get tested for COVID-19 at their own expense.

Intra-state travel is not allowed at the moment, except in emergency situations. Permissible reasons for travel include:

  • Essential services
  • Public services provided by a local authority
  • Death of a first relative
  • Extreme medical emergency
  • Marriage

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra e-Pass has been reintroduced for those who need to travel inter-district or inter-state for emergency reasons.

For the passengers travelling domestically, they must download Aarogya Setu App. On the other hand, it is mandatory for passengers arriving from Delhi/NCR, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Goa, Uttarakhand and Kerala to carry the RT-PCR report. Moreover, passengers not having RT-PCR reports must undergo RT-PCR tests at the airport at their own expense.

Furthermore, amidst the second wave of the coronavirus, the government has made it mandatory for those travelling from the states of Delhi/NCR, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Goa, Uttarakhand, and Kerala to carry an RT-PCR negative certificate.
