Effective from 22 May 2021, all passengers boarding international flights from India will have to showcase a mandatory negative RT-PCR report that should have a QR code link to the original report. The QR code will ensure that the negative COVID report is not fake.
This rule is applicable to those passengers, who are required to carry a negative RT-PCR test report as per the guidelines issued by the destination countries. The decision was taken by the Ministry of Civil Aviation last week after it was reported that passengers are producing fake negative reports to travel there.

After this, the Ministry of Civil Aviation issued a statement, saying that “The airline operators are advised to accept only those passengers who are carrying a negative RT-PCR test report with QR code for boarding international flights departing from India after 0001 hours on 22 May 2021.”
On the same side, Air India Express also released a statement on Twitter alerting its passengers. It reported that “Effective 22nd May 2021, passengers carrying negative RT-PCR report as per the requirement of their destination country, must ensure that the report has a QR code linking to the original report.”
