New Delhi : The domestic passengers visiting Maharashtra will no longer require a negative RT-PCR report if they have taken their both doses of coronavirus vaccine. A negative RT-PCR report was made mandatory for people to travel in Maharashtra in last order.

Key points for travelers in Mumbai:

# The Maharashtra government had imposed restrictions on domestic passengers arriving in the state on May 12.

# As per the order, any passenger arriving by any mode of transport was required to carry negative RT-PCR test conducted 48 hours prior to commencing the journey.

# The restrictions were primarily imposed on passengers coming from Gujarat, Goa, Delhi, Rajasthan and Kerala.

# After increased cases of coronavirus, the restriction was imposed on all people.

On Monday, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope held a detailed discussion with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and asked him to either lift the curbs completely in order to provide relief to the people or tighten the lockdown amid the possibility of the third wave of corona.
