Mangaluru, April 23, 2021: Some passengers who had to travel to Dubai had to literally struggle and face anxious moments at the Mangaluru International Airport due to some technical glitches in Covid test reports.
As per rule those travelling to Dubai should have a Covid negative report not older than 48 hours and the report should also have the QR code of the hospital where the test was done. However, there arose a problem in issuing QR code in some hospitals forcing many to cancel their travel.
Earlier, as per the rule of Dubai administration, travellers to Dubai needed to have a Covid negative report not older than 72 hours. However, now it has reduced to 48 hours. It is learnt some hospitals here came to know about this a bit late resulting in the problem.
