West Bengal no longer requires RT-PCR negative reports from fully vaccinated travellers

As the second wave of Covid-19 fades in India, states have moved forward to open up their lockdowns and their travel restrictions again. At last count, per our update, there were 9 states and union territories which were welcoming fully vaccinated travellers without any sort of tests. Now, it is time for an update.

West Bengal opens up for travel without RT-PCR reports for fully vaccinated travellers

The Government of West Bengal has issued a new order for the fully vaccinated travellers. As per an order issued by the WB Government, for those passengers who are fully-vaccinated, they no longer need to present an RT-PCR negative test on arriving into West Bengal based airports, such as Kolkata, Bagdogra or Durgapur . It is unclear for now, though, if only Indian vaccination certificates will be accepted (like Maharashtra), or any other country’s certificates as well.

Bottomline

If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need an RT-PCR test report to arrive into West Bengal by air with immediate effect
