Pakistan Expands Visa on Arrival Facility for 25 More Countries

On Monday, Vice Chairman Overseas Pakistanis Commission, Chaudhary Waseem Akhtar, said that Pakistan is heading in the right direction under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

While addressing the media, Akhtar said that the incumbent government has undertaken numerous initiatives to boost tourism in the country.

In this regard, Pakistan has finally decided to grant the facility of visa-on-arrival to 50 countries. Previously, visa-on-arrival was only issued to tourists from 25 countries.

Pakistan is blessed with scenic landscapes complemented by four kinds of weather, enough to attract a large number of tourists. The beauty of Gilgit Baltistan and Kashmir mesmerizes tourists, said Akhtar.

Issuing visas on arrival to tourists of 50 countries will boost tourism which could help the country on the economic front. The initiative will also project a soft image of Pakistan on the global stage.

Chaudhary Waseem Akhtar commemorated the sacrifices and paid tribute to the security forces for curbing terrorism in the country.

Other than that, earlier this year, the PTI government enforced a new visa regime under which the e-visa facility was approved for tourists of 175 countries.
