On Tuesday, the Civil Aviation Authority made it mandatory for international passengers entering Pakistan to provide coronavirus test results before boarding their flights. A CAA notification confirmed that “all international passengers arriving at Pakistani airports must provide a copy of the test result for COVID-19 via RT-PCR conducted 24 hours prior to boarding the flight.” The copy of the test result must bear the passenger’s name and passport number and the original result will be provided to the landing airport in Pakistan. The CAA said it will be the responsibility of the airline’s operators to ensure that all passengers have provided a copy of their evidence before boarding the plane.
In addition, the CAA said that passengers will also provide a full health declaration form at the landing airport in Pakistan. The authority asked airline operators to ensure the disinfection of the aircraft according to international procedures between each disembarkation and embarkation of passengers. In addition, the CAA announced that international flight operations will resume at all international airports in Pakistan, except Gwadar and Turbat.
