A family member is travelling from OSL- Paris(CDG) – Delhi.
The flight from Osl was at (2/04/2021) 17:30 with 15 hours layover in Paris and then tomorrow flight is schedule at (3/04/21) 11:50 to delhi .
The problem is we tested the member on 30th March for RT PCR which was around 68 hours before the first departure from Oslo , at oslo airport they gave both boarding pass without any question after checking embassy registration and rt pcr report.
After landing to Paris ,some member at counter from AF said that you will be not allowed to board tomorrow the flight since you have exceeded the requirement of 72 hours of rt pcr report from Paris .
I am still not sure , as on Delhi airport GoI ministry of health and family welfare pdf says , the person shall conduct rt pcr within 72 hours prior to undertaking the journey
Does anyone know what shall we do about the situation ?
Any help is appreciated!!!
Finally able to board the flight yesterday
At the boarding gate one crew member was checking the document , asked my family member and one more person to move aside from the line as RT-PCR was meeting not 72 hours Deadline for Paris to Delhi flight. Crew member was not ready to listen anything
After sometime another crew member arrived sHe was atleast ready to listen about the first departure 72 hour rule mentioned in Delhi airpot GoI pdf. Crew member gave a call to some higher official , they had conversation (in french) was not able to understand what was that talk about. Crew member said official knows your case you can join the line and proceed for boarding.
To avoid any uneccesary stress
Make sure your RT-PCR report does not exceed 72 hours deadline at the boarding for your last transit flight from Paris to Delhi.
