A common question for many tourists who are traveling to Pakistan from abroad is whether Pakistan is safe or not for travel for visitors from foreign countries.
Pakistan has become a tourist hot spot in the last decade, with visitors from all over the world thronging to trek, hike, and experience the breathtaking views of the Himalayan, Karakoram, and Hindu Kush Mountain ranges. With peaks in the north and deserts in the south, it has something for everyone.
When it comes to security, let us go through some of the important things you should keep in mind when traveling to Pakistan:
COVID-19 Regulations or In-Bound Travellers: Vaccination is necessary for all inbound passengers.
The negative PCR test has been abolished for inbound passengers who are fully vaccinated. Those who are not vaccinated and over the age of 12 will require a negative PCR test of no more than 48 hours old.
COVID-19 Regulations or Out-bound Passengers: For outbound travelers, a negative PCR test may be required by the airline.
Please check the guidelines of your specific airline. Foreign passport holders are allowed to exit the country without showing proof of vaccination.
