On the direction of Prime Minister Imran Khan, a special aircraft will bring back 320 Pakistanis from Malaysia, enabling them to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with their families.
There are more than 320 Pakistani nationals in the Malaysian jails who have completed their prison/sentence term and were unable to be repatriated as direct flights got suspended in the last week of February 2019 owing to the regional situation. Most of these nationals were imprisoned due to expiry of visa or residence permits.
To facilitate the repatriation process, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs established a special cell at the Ministry which included representatives of PIA, Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Pakistan Bait-ul-Maal. With joint efforts of the concerned Ministries/Departments, the special flight will land in Islamabad on 29 May 2019.
