If you have a POC, you can have visa-free entry and stay for an indefinite period of time in Pakistan. You are also exempted from foreigner registration requirements.
Holders will also be able to sell and purchase property, and they will have a right to open and operate bank accounts.
Applications for the POC are submitted online through NADRA’s website. You can also apply for the renewal, modification and cancellation of Pakistan Origin Card, based on your requirement.
