Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas, including to Pakistan. If you’re in Pakistan and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Pakistan has confirmed multiple cases of COVID-19. Pakistan has closed its land borders with Iran and Afghanistan and delayed the planned opening of its border with China. International flights have been limited to Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi airports only. From 21 March 2020, all international arriving passengers will be required to provide a copy of a Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test result for COVID-19 conducted during the 24-hour period prior to boarding the flight. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Pakistan.
