Pakistan has announced that it would scrap the Covid PCR test requirement for vaccinated travellers from the UAE and other countries from tomorrow, February 24.
Pakistan had made it mandatory for all inbound passengers to be fully vaccinated from January 6, 2022.
However, those passengers who are not fully vaccinated will have to carry a negative PCR test prior to the departure to Pakistan, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), the body which oversees regulations related to Covid-19, said on Wednesday.
“Pre-boarding negative PCR has been abolished for fully vaccinated inbound travellers. However, non-vaccinated individuals over 12 years will require pre-boarding negative PCR taken not more than 72 hours before the departure,” the NCOC said on Wednesday.
