Frequently Asked Question
Entry for travelers from Pakistan in any particular country depends on the destination they are visiting. Every nation has different rules and regulations amidst the spread of COVID-19. It is advised that passengers must read all the rules and regulations before making travel plans. For further information please visit our Corona Travel Update page.
Passengers from any country can travel to Pakistan at the moment. Pakistan has eased travel restrictions for people who want to visit the country. However, each country has its own rules and regulations. Travelers from a particular country must go through travel advice for a seamless travel experience. People from the UK, UAE, KSA, Dubai, and America visit Pakistan the most. Similarly, Pakistanis tend to travel very frequently to Dubai, KSA, UAE, UK, America, and Turkey.
All the passengers must have to follow the safety protocols while traveling PAN-Pakistan or out of Pakistan. General safety protocols include showing proof of being fully vaccinated, wearing a mask, using a sanitizer, or undergoing a PCR Test if demanded by the country you are traveling to or the airline with which you are traveling. Pakistan has abolished pre-boarding negative PCR for all inbound passengers.
The necessary documents include proof of being fully vaccinated, an ID card, a valid ticket, a valid passport, a valid visa, a negative PCR test report (if required by the destination) or any specific document issued by the airline for the safety of all passengers and crew.
Currently, there is no form that needs to be filled out when boarding a flight within Pakistan. The Government of Pakistan has introduced a mobile app named Pass Track App to speed up your arrival process in Pakistan. Fill in your details within 48 hours before arriving in Pakistan and spend less time with public health and immigration authorities.
