The passengers need to register on www.suburbandiagnostics.com to avail of this facility. There is even a helpdesk at the arrival terminal for RT-PCR test enrollments.

Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) spokesperson said that arriving passengers will have to wait at the waiting lounge where they would be provided special food and beverage until the test reports come. With the permission of the state authorities, passengers can even book a room at the airport hotel. Passengers who will have a negative test result will be able to proceed further towards the destination. However, they will get a stamp related to home quarantine. In case of a positive report, passengers will be taken to the designated institution by the state officials.
The officials also said that the passengers who are departing from Mumbai will soon have to go through RT-CPR test at CSMIA. The reports will be provided to the passengers through email. All international passengers are advised to book their connecting flight in an interval of 8-12 hours.
