RAWALPINDI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has introduced fresh measures making it mandatory for all passengers travelling to Pakistan to submit complete information through “Pass Track App” as part of the continuing measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

It will also be helpful in streamlining data submission and tracking through relevant platforms for passengers travelling to Pakistan. The CAA has mandated that effective May 1 submission of complete requisite information and data through Pass Tack App will be compulsory for all inbound passengers.

The CAA said this stipulation will be a mandatory requirement and no exception shall be allowed.

It will be the prime responsibility of airline operators to ensure that all passengers travelling to Pakistan submit complete information through the Pass Track App prior to commencement of travel. Cases of non-compliance will be dealt with strictly in accordance with rules and regulations.

Additionally, the requirement of submission of health declaration form will cease from May 1 upon coming into effect of the mandatory requirement of submission of information / data through Pass Track App.
