Pakistan Bans Passports for Pakistanis Seeking Asylum Abroad

In light of national security considerations, the Ministry of Interior has made a significant decision regarding passport issuance for Pakistani citizens who have sought asylum in foreign countries.

According to a notification released by the ministry in Islamabad on Tuesday, individuals of Pakistani nationality who have applied for asylum in other countries will be ineligible to obtain Pakistani passports. The directive further specifies that passports held by such individuals will be subject to cancellation, and subsequent renewal requests will not be entertained.

The announcement, communicated through a formal notification by the Director General Passports, underscores the seriousness of the measure. It reflects the stance of the Interior Minister, Mohsin Naqvi, who directed the issuance of this directive.

This comprehensive directive has been circulated not only within the Ministry of Interior but also to the Foreign Ministry and all relevant stakeholders, indicating a concerted effort to implement the policy effectively.


  • Can’t live in Pakistan bc it’s hell here can’t go abroad and live there bc it’s not Pakistan WTF

  • What about those who have looted Pakistan and have ripped the country in one form or the other and holding dual nationalities, irony is that there is no accountability and they come back in power with money they have looted to play havoc with this miserable nation. Illegitimate powerful have their own illegal activities of in & out smuggling, selling minerals/ resources and creating insecurity to justify their control. Eeman on akhirat and fear of facing for the crimes (on Huquooq ul Ibaad) is seriously ignored with false assumption that Allah is Ghagoor o Raheem hai (where as it’s up to Allah to forgive or not on Huquooq Allah and definitely not Huquooq ul Ibaad).
