The government has temporarily suspended arrivals from Iran and Afghanistan via land, it said in a notification Tuesday.

The restriction will be effective from 6pm on May 5 till May
20, according to the notification.

There will be no restriction on people travelling to Iran
and Afghanistan from Pakistan. Similarly, Pakistani citizens in Iran and
Afghanistan could also return to the country.

However, Afghan citizens will be allowed into the country in
case they are in dire need of medical care.

Islamabad has informed the Iranian and Afghan authorities of
the decision. Authorities will also double the staff on border crossings to
test people for coronavirus.

The restriction will not apply to Afghan transit or cargo
trade vehicles.
