All you need to know Before Flying to Mumbai

With flight operations officially resuming across India, the Maharashtra State Government has issued revised guidelines and SOPs for all passengers and flights arriving into Mumbai. These rules will apply to anyone traveling into the state, although there are exemptions made for local officials engaged in important work, particularly with regard to home isolation.

Here are the rules that you need to remember before traveling to Mumbai from another state:

  • Each traveling passenger will be asked to download the Aarogya Setu app on their mobile devices.

  • Passengers have to certify/declare that they’re not coming from a designated containment zone and are lacking any symptoms. 

  • Travellers will also be asked to declare that they are currently not under quarantine and haven’t been reported coronavirus positive in the last two months.

  • Each passenger will be stamped on arrival and will have to spend 14-days in home isolation.

  • If they’re not staying at home, the passenger needs to provide adequate information on where they intend to stay within Maharashtra.

  • Passengers who are staying in the state for less than a week are exempt from the mandatory 14-day home isolation requirement. 

  • Citizens can bring their own vehicles to the airport as long as they’re not coming from a designated containment zone. 

  • Arriving passengers will not be allowed to travel to containment zones located in hotspots within the state or city.

  • Airlines and airports are required to perform thermal screening on every passenger/staff while also ensuring social distancing among the staff as well as the travellers.

Passengers that don’t follow these rules will face strict action as per the authorities. The state government has currently allowed 25 flights to get into Mumbai, and the new SOPs (Standard Operating Procedure) listed above will be implemented immediately.
