Delhi Airport Only Acceptable Covid Test Site Across India For Canada-Bound Travellers

New Delhi: Genestrings Diagnostic Centre's lab at the Delhi international airport has been appointed by the Canadian government as the sole COVID-19 testing facility in India for Canada-bound passengers, a statement said on Monday.

As per the latest guidelines by the Canadian authorities, travellers eligible to enter Canada and travelling on direct flights from India must obtain a pre-departure negative COVID-19 molecular test result from the Genestrings' lab, the statement said.

The facility -- which is located above the metro station in the Airport Connect Building (ACB) at the Delhi international airport -- will perform this test within 18 hours before the scheduled departure of the passengers and a test report with a QR code will be given to them, it said.

The QR code given by the lab has to be shown to the airline just before boarding, it added.

Canada lifted the flight ban on passenger flights from India on September 27. Air Canada is currently operating two to four flights every day from the Delhi airport, the statement said.

Currently, flights to Canada are being operated from only Delhi in India.
