Amid a surge in cases of Omicron variant in the country, the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Tuesday issued new guidelines for international travellers from `at-risk` countries arriving at six major airports to mandatorily prebook an RT-PCR test starting December 20. It would be the responsibility of the airlines to identify and accompany such passengers to the registration counter at the airport for testing, the notification read.
