All International Passengers Can Now Avail On-Arrival COVID-19 Testing Facility at Delhi Airport

As per the latest government guidelines, all international arriving passengers can now avail on-arrival covid-19 testing facility at the Delhi Airport. As per earlier guidelines, only the passengers with further domestic connection were allowed to have RT-PCR test done on the spot. Rest of the passengers were required to produce a Covid-19 negative report done 96-hours prior to boarding.

On-arrival testing facility will help passengers seeking exemption from institutional quarantine if tested negative. Delhi Airport became the first airport in India to set up a COVID-19 testing facility at the International Airport Terminal 3 for the international arriving passengers.

The facility was set up opposite the Terminal 3 at the multi-level car parking area for the incoming passengers who have to take connecting domestic flights. This facility will now be used for arriving passengers.

Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), the company that runs Delhi airport, collaborated with Genestrings Diagnostic Centre, a Delhi-based laboratory, which is currently associated with Delhi government to test COVID-19 samples to conduct the tests.
