Qatar Airways has made conducting Coronavirus tests mandatory for all passengers from Pakistan.
Qatar Airways issued a travel advisory for passengers, informing them that from July 13 everyone leaving Pakistan must present a negative PCR (coronavirus) test to be able to board their planes.
The negative test result needs to have been issued less than 72 hours before the flight. Children below the age of 12 are free from this obligation if they’re accompanied by their family.
The cost of the test must be borne by the passengers themselves.

Passengers must carry a copy of the test certificate and laboratory authentication form as well as tell the laboratory to directly share the result with Qatar Airways.

Multiple airlines have suspended outgoing flights from Pakistan due to the country’s number of coronavirus cases. The number has nearly hit the 250,000 mark.

Emirates, Etihad and Fly Dubai all suspended outgoing flights but have kept cargo flights operational. They are still bringing passengers to the country.

Separately, PIA’s flights to the United States (US) and Europe have been suspended over fake licence issues.

Earlier, Qatar Airway had given away free air flight tickets to healthcare experts internationally to thank them for their services during coronavirus outbreak.

According to the details, the airways announced the 100,000 free tickets for the medical staff worldwide in order to extend thankfulness.
