Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Sayed Zulfiqar Bukhari has directed his ministry to schedule special flights for Pakistani students willing to return to China to complete their studies.

The development comes after air travel and other measures were taken across the world, including China and Pakistan to halt the spread of coronavirus.

Various pupils who had returned from China after the pandemic begins to spend time with their families in Pakistan were left stuck in the country and were unable to return to China to carry on their education.

Pakistan has now resumed international and domestic flight operations following a reduction in COVID-19 infections across the country.

“Pakistani students who‘ve been waiting to go back to China to continue their education, please register yourselves on the given link,” said the premier’s aide.

“I will also be taking up the unresolved visa issues with relevant authorities,” he added.
