PM Imran Khan to Introduce Special Incentives for Remittances from Overseas Pakistanis

Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Friday, said that his government will announce a special package of incentives to encourage the Overseas Pakistanis to send remittances through banking channels by removing all hindrances and procedural issues.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister, who had an extensive meeting on Friday on Overseas Pakistanis, said,

Inshaallah by removing these hindrances we will be able to increase remittance flows from $ 20 billion to at least $ 30 billion & perhaps even $ 40 billion through banking channels.

He, in this respect, also referred to the success of the Philippines.

The Prime Minister said,

We are also moving to remove hassles Overseas Pakistanis confront at immigration when they come to Pakistan. Our Missions abroad have also been directed to look after and deal effectively with the concerns of our Overseas Pakistanis.

Besides, he said the government was also going to ensure protection for the Overseas Pakistanis’ properties and land, especially from the land mafias.


  • Sending money through banks from Gulf and European countries is still easy. What about African countries like Nigeria, Algeria, Ghana etc.? It’s worse. PTI govt should check this thing also.

    سب سے پہلے تو پاکستان میں بنکوں کو پابند کریں کے وہ بیرون ملک سے بھیجی جانے والی رقم کو فوراٰ پروسیس کریں۔ سعودیہ سے پاکستان کے بینک اکاوٗنٹ میں رقم بھیجنے کا سب سے بڑا مسٗلہ یہ ہے کہ جب ٹریک کرو تو کئی دنوں تک پروسیسینگ ہی لکھا آتا ہے۔ ابھی کچھ ہی دن پہلے سعودیہ سے میزان بینک رقم بھیجی، بدھ کے دن یہاں سے بھیجی اور پیر کے دن وہاں موصول ہوئی۔ لوگوں کی ہنڈی کی طرف رجحان کی ایک بڑی وجہ یہ بھی ہے کہ ہنڈی سے بھیجی جانے والی رقم فوراٰ مل جاتی ہے۔
