The next phase in the repatriation of Pakistanis stranded abroad during the coronavirus pandemic is reported to start today.

According to the report, FM Qureshi informed a parliamentary committee responsible for the matter that 39,748 Pakistanis have applied to return to Pakistan.

The Foreign Minister was quoted in the report as saying that 1,640 Pakistanis have so far been returned on 12 special flights. He said greater efforts are being made to bring stranded Pakistanis back in this next phase of flight.

During this phase, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will repatriate more than 1,800 Pakistanis stranded in various locations around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to the PIA, flights will operate from today until April 19.
