What is a domestic flight?

A domestic flight within Pakistan is a flight that departs and flies off from one destination in Pakistan, for example, Islamabad and lands at another destination in Pakistan, for instance, Karachi. As the flight doesn't leave Pakitan's territory, the flight will be known as a domestic flight because the departure destination and arrival destination is within the same country.

As a domestic flight means that one doesn't leave the country, you are not subject to border and immigration controls. Also, you aren't required to use your passport. However, you will still need a valid photo ID, so many people choose to use their passport anyway. Those living in Pakistan or have a reference with the country from out of Pakistan can use a Pak-identity card also known as a Nadra card instead of using a passport to travel domestically. Read more about travel documents here.
