The visiting team reached the Islamabad International Airport at 8:10pm after being escorted by a presidential level security team. Special security units had taken control of the route between the hotel and the airport.
The kiwi team stayed at the state guest lounge at the airport, where they went through rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for Covid-19 before the departure.
Thanks for this. Looks like they did not have a dedicated security team fly out to PAK from NZ or elsewhere to secure the perimeter.
