With new SOPs for arriving passengers announced, and resumption of regular international operations also announced by CAA, when can we expect inbound passengers to be allowed?

Especially from gulf carriers like EK, EY and QR?

Hence the immediate Suspension of EK flights from Pakistan!!!

In Australia, 7 News reported that 1/4 of all new COVID19 cases from new arrivals are from people returning from Pakistan.

People in Pakistan need to stay home, stop socialising, stop shopping and stop the spread otherwise Pakistani residents will be banned from entering many countries. As it is, its difficult for Pakistanis to obtain visas to many western nations - this will give those authorities more reasons to reject such visa applications.

I cannot be more clear or blunt - Please Stay Home. Dont go and visit your friends, dont go shopping (only essentials and possibly arrange for one person to do the shopping, including a community effort) and dont go to the mosque!

PS: we've had mosques close here in Aust since March (only recently opened up for 100ppl) and we're fine.

Houses of worship may have been closed where ever you live but this is Pakistan so...
Please do not advise NAMAZIS not to go to the Masjids
Policy of the Govt is NOT TO CLOSE MASJIDS but remind people to stay at safe distance during visits
......if that was ever possible in this law abiding country
Also the Mullah brigade is very very much in favour of Masajids staying open
.....it is their bread and butter after all
Pakistanis are returning back home so who cares about visas not being available.

EK615 (ISB - DXB) and EK623 (LHE - DXB) were ready for departure, passengers were checked-in, but at the last minute everyone was offloaded and the flights were ferried back to DXB.

I saw an email sent out internally to EK employees stating that the flights would be sent back empty and would not carry any passengers, whether transit or arriving in DXB.

Very sad since I knew some people who were flying from ISB, they had come all the way from KPK just to make the flight only to be sent back.

Not a right way of handling things by EK. IMO, Pakistan should at least hold EK request to resume flights for three days as they can repeat the same.

Good to See Qatar is increasing frequency and TK resuming Flight ops on 2nd July.

I guess the UAE government probably doesnt want emirates to be shot in the foot by carrying pakistani passengers. I think the airlines will start to milk the flights for their moneys worth before they also start to cancel.

Well I am hearing something very different re why Emirates has stopped flights to/from Pakistan and this has been confirmed further by a video by Mubashir Luqman.

Apparently CAA are refusing to give them the slots they had prior to Covid-19, saying they are unavailable and so instead of giving Pak CAA backhanders / bribes they have pulled the plug for now.
