Hence, travelers from Kerala and these four states are required to get a negative RT-PCR test done before departure. Irrespective of the airline you are flying, the test is compulsory.
This is not just true for passengers flying into Maharashtra, but also for those taking the train. Railway passengers are required to get tested within 96 hours before travel. If in any case you are not carrying a report with you, you will be screened at the railway station.
Furthermore, those passengers with COVID symptoms would also have to undergo an antigen test, and a positive result would get you admitted at a COVID care centre. The expenses of the treatment will be borne by the passenger.
Mumbai now also has a mobile RT-PCR lab for COVID-19 testing, the results of which will be revealed in 24 hours. The cost of the testing will be Rs 499. This mobile service has been developed by the Indian Council of Medical Research and Spice Health.
