As the pandemic wanes and rises time and again, countries worldwide have adopted several measures to enable safe travelling. While Pakistan has eased most of its travel restrictions, travelling to the country requires passengers to submit essential documents, providing details of stay and health conditions.
One such important travel requisite in Pakistan right now is the Pass Track. Here is everything you should know about Pass Track in Pakistan.
What is the Pass Track?
The National Information Technology Board of Pakistan has put in place the ‘Pass Track Platform’ that enables all international travellers to the country to update their medical and travel records.
It aids in recording and tracking the passengers’ basic data and other relevant details.
As for visitors to Pakistan, the app helps to:
- Provide mandatory information required for entry into Pakistan
- Reduce wait time and points of contact at the airport
- Provide the Government of Pakistan with voluntary updates and the development of any symptoms during the 14 days upon arrival in Pakistan.

International arrivals are required to upload data to Pass Track
All passengers travelling to Pakistan are required to fill up their personal details on the Pass Track web portal 48 hours prior to their arrival in Pakistan.
All travellers are also required to submit details such as flight number, travel dates and other personal information. Pakistani nationals must scan their CNIC and passport through the inbuilt QR scanner and MRZ scanner, respectively.
Foreign travellers must get their passports scanned by the MRZ scanner while entering flight details.
They are required to have a printed copy of the uploaded information generated by the app before the issuance of boarding passes at the point of original embarkation. Any or all cases of non-compliance will be dealt with strictly in accordance with applicable rules and regulations.
After submitting all necessary details, you can view the details of your flight from the travel detail screen and receive your tracking ID, which is important for location tracing in case you are quarantined.
