With the rapid rise in the number of Omicron cases in the state, the airport authorities are worried about the spread of the variant. Rajasthan having the highest number of cases of Omicron issued a fresh set of guidelines for international and domestic travel.
The number of Omicron variant cases has already crossed 20 in the country and is the highest in the state. To curb this, new rules for domestic as well as international travelers have been released.
As per the new guidelines, travellers who have administered the first dose of the COVID vaccine will be allowed to enter the state. They won’t need a negative RT-PCR report nor would they be required for quarantine. Passengers who haven’t had the first dose of the vaccine will be needed to show a negative RT-PCR report of the last 24 hours. If not, they will have to be quarantined as per rules.
For international travelers, if any passenger tests positive their samples would be further sent to ascertain whether they have the new variant or not. It will be mandatory for all passengers to go through thermal screening and oxygen saturation tests.
