COVID-19 testing requirements

As described above, entry into the inaugural session on April 25 requires a negative RT-PCR test taken at most 48 hours prior. An RT-PCR test is not mandatory for attendance on April 26 and April 27. However, we expect all attendees to take rapid antigen tests (RATs) on days that they are attending the Dialogue.

RAT kits will be provided to all participants staying at the conference hotels (Taj Palace, ITC Maurya, and the Hyatt) for the remaining conference days. We expect participants to check their Covid-negative status daily by using these kits. Please report the results of your rapid antigen tests to the Raisina Dialogue Control Hub.

Please do isolate yourself if you feel unwell or show symptoms of Covid-19. Raisina Dialogue attendees can contact the registration desk by mail ([email protected]) or phone (+91 99100 28657 / +91 9958384004) to access RT-PCR testing on-site. There is a doctor on call to ensure your safety and that of your fellow-attendees.
