People must follow safety protocols
You can now travel to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan as permitted by the NCOC and the governments of the two provinces.
The travel will be unrestricted and you can visit all tourist spots, said the Tourism Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan Raja Nasir Ali Khan. The road to the Babusar Top will be cleared by May 29. People can choose to fly there if flights start to operate. It is possible that the new airlines licensed to fly to Gilgit from major cities in Pakistan will start in June. International tourists can visit once international flights commence in Skardu Airport.
Tourists are encouraged to carry their coronavirus negative test results. There will, however, be no consequence if they choose not to.
It is mandatory for people to follow SOPs, said the tourism ministers of both provinces. Rescue 1122, health departments, hotel managers, and tour operators have been trained to follow safety protocols in KP. Most hotel staff has been vaccinated. They have been instructed not to allow people above the age of 50 who are not vaccinated.
Last week, the National Command and Operation Centre announced SOPs for travellers, both local and international, planning to travel across the country anytime soon.
Tour operators have been instructed to submit details of tourists to their district administration before visiting the tourist spots. People have been told to wear masks at all times and avoid gatherings in large groups.
For foreign travellers, they need to read up on Pakistan’s quarantine and Covid-19 testing protocols before travelling.
