Online booking for the quick test at the airport will be open to all
Currently, only passengers traveling to the UAE are allowed to reserve slots on the portal
All passengers will soon be allowed to undergo RT-PCR and rapid antigen test (RAT) for SARS CoV-2 at Chennai airport. Passengers can pay for the test and get the results before boarding a flight or leaving the airport.
Authorities are working to correct an issue with the online slot booking portal for rapid antigen testing for outgoing passengers.
While travelers arriving at the airport face no problem booking online for RAT, passengers traveling to countries other than the United Arab Emirates cannot book a slot online before reaching the airport. . They can’t get past the booking page with the portal displaying a message “only passengers traveling to the UAE should opt for a quick test.” ”
With the United States forcing those entering the country to produce a negative COVID-19 test report from the coming week, the problem could turn into a problem, a few travelers said.
A senior Chennai airport official who acknowledged the issue said it had been brought to the attention of relevant officials and they were coordinating with the Hindlabs to resolve the issue.
However, passengers traveling to other districts of the state can take the rapid PCR test by showing their ticket.
