UAE-India flights: No Covid PCR test needed for fully vaccinated passengers
Passengers who have been fully vaccinated in the UAE don’t need to take a Covid PCR test before travelling to India. Earlier, only passengers who had a vaccination certificate issued in India were eligible for the pre-travel PCR test exemption.
The UAE has been added to India’s list of countries/regions from where the vaccination schedule completion certificate is recognised.
Passengers must upload the vaccination certificate on the Air Suvidha portal.
Those who have not been vaccinated, or don’t have a certificate issued from the list of recognised countries, need to take a PCR test within 72 hours of their flight. Children aged under 5 years are exempted from the PCR tests.
