Earlier, amid a decline in Covid-19 infections, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) lifted a ban on passengers travelling to Pakistan from 12 more countries in category C.
The CAA's new travel guideline for passengers and chartered flights said that the Pakistanis intending to return to the country from category C countries have been allowed to travel during June. However, the passengers will be subject to a coronavirus test and quarantine upon arrival in Pakistan.
In addition, international travellers will also be required to possess a valid negative PCR test certificate conducted 72 hours prior to commencement of travel to Pakistan.
The CAA also amended the category C list comprising of countries needing prior permission from the NCOC to enter Pakistan.
