Entry requirements

30 Sep 2020 / Pakistan

Travelers entering Pakistan must provide traveler contact information through the official version of the PassTrack mobile app or an accessible web-based form.

They must also undergo screening by a health official and provide a certificate of negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test results.

Starting 5 October, all international Travelers will require a mandatory negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within 96 hours of the travel date.

Currently, 38 countries are exempted from mandatory COVID-19 testing, as listed at http://covid.gov.pk/intl_travellers/current_policies. This list will be updated on a fortnightly basis by Ministry National Health Services, Regulation and Coordination based on the disease burden of COVID-19. It is next due for review on 8 October.

To speed up the arrival process in Pakistan and spend less time with immigration and public health officers, travelers may submit information easily and securely using the app within 48 hours before arriving in Pakistan. The app helps provide mandatory information required for entry, reduce wait time and points of contact at the airport, and provide the Government of Pakistan with voluntary updates and the development of any symptoms during the 14 days after arriving in Pakistan.
