Tripura stops mandatory testing for incoming travellers

The passengers, however, have to produce negative RTPCR reports issued within 72 hours prior to arrival or double vaccination certificates to enter the state

AGARTALA:

Mandatory Covid-19 testing upon arrival in Tripura will no longer be needed if passengers produce negative RTPCR reports issued within 72 hours prior to arrival or double vaccination certificates, the government said.

On 31st January, the government had issued a notification stating that the directive will come into effect from February 2.

All domestic passengers coming to the state through MBB Airport, Churaibari Checkpost, and Railway stations will have to produce the said documents. If any passenger fails to produce the above-mentioned documents than he/she will have to undergo a COVID-19 test at the entry point, the notification read.

Meanwhile, the state government has also opened all the educational institutions including schools, colleges, and universities from January 31 as the number of positive cases has started declining in the state.

The government has also revised the night curfew time from 8 pm to 10 pm.
