Observing the spike in covid19 cases in Kerala and Maharashtra, the Karnataka government Karnataka has made negative RT-PCR certificates mandatory for all arrivals from the two States. The certificate should not be older than 72 hours irrespective of vaccination status. 

Additional Chief Secretary (Health and Family Welfare) Jawaid Akhtar issued a circular in this regard on July 31.

“The negative certificate is mandatory for all the passengers coming to Karnataka by flight, bus, train, and personal transport. This is applicable for all flights originating in Kerala and Maharashtra. Airlines should issue boarding passes only to passengers carrying RT-PCR negative certificates not older than 72 hours,” states the circular.

While railway authorities will be responsible for ensuring that all passengers traveling by trains carry negative RT-PCR certificates, bus conductors will enforce this norm by all those traveling by bus, according to the circular.

“It is mandatory for all students and people visiting Karnataka daily for education, business and other reasons to undergo RT-PCR test once in 15 days and possess a negative test report,” the circular states.
