Earlier, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had introduced new measures to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, making it mandatory for all travelers to Pakistan to submit their complete information through the ‘Pass Track App’.
According to the reports, the move will also help streamline the data submitted and track passengers arriving in Pakistan through relevant platforms.
The CAA has made it mandatory for all travelers coming to Pakistan to submit all necessary information and data through the Pass Track app from May 1.
The Civil Aviation Authority said that fulfilling this condition would be mandatory for all passengers and no one would get any discount.
The primary responsibility of airline operators will be to ensure that all passengers submit complete information through the ‘Pass Track App’ before traveling to Pakistan.
Cases that do not comply with this directive will be dealt with strictly in accordance with the rules and regulations.
In addition, the requirement to submit a Health Declaration Form will expire on May 1 after the application for complete information and data submission through the PassTrack app.
