Pakistan stated that it will loosen restrictions on incoming planes even more by allowing them to fly at full capacity. Following a meeting in Islamabad, the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), the leading authority fighting the coronavirus, changed the travel alert following the implementation of mandatory vaccination for incoming travel in Pakistan.

The app is meant to assist in the assessment and tracking of national and international travellers arriving in Pakistan from other Covid-19 countries that have been affected.
The software has a QR and Barcode scanning capability that allows you to scan your Pakistani National Identity Card. The programme has a clever option for scanning a passport with an MRZ reader, making it easier for travellers to fill out essential basic information while being evaluated for COVID asymptotic symptoms.
