Pakistan Extends Restrictions on UK Passengers Until Jan 4

Pakistan on Monday extended travel restrictions for inbound travelers from the United Kingdom (United Kingdom) until January 4, 2021.

On December 21, Pakistan announced travel restrictions for incoming travelers from the UK, after infections with a more contagious strain of the new coronavirus began to rise in the European country.

Previously, the CAA had announced that the ban would remain in effect until December 29, 2020. A notice from the Division of Aviation had previously said that the curbs would remain in place from December 22 to 29 and will apply to people who are traveling from the UK and are or have been in the UK within the last 10 days (from the date the notice was issued).

Several countries around the world have banned air travel to and from the UK, fearing that new passengers will also bring the new strain of the virus onto their soil.

The Pass Track App, which records the basic information of passengers arriving in Pakistan, was made mandatory for people entering the country.

On December 22, Pakistan announced that it had updated travel restrictions, relaxing them for Pakistani passport holders.

The CAA had announced that Pakistani passport holders who have been issued business, visitor or transit visas by British authorities could return to the country provided they had a negative PCR test.

However, the test must have been carried out 72 hours before the start of your trip to Pakistan, the aviation authority said.

The government had also allowed Pakistanis who have study, family, work and settlement visas in the UK to return to Pakistan “if their visas expire within the next 30 days from the issuance of this letter while they have reports negative PCR tests performed within 72 hours before the start of the trip to Pakistan ”.

The CAA had said that flight crew members could disembark in Pakistan as long as they were tested for the coronavirus upon arrival and quarantined at designated hotels.

Crew members who test negative will be allowed to perform their duties in Pakistan, while those who test positive must remain in quarantine at designated hotels for a time specified by the country's health authorities.
