Pakistan to issue on arrival visas to Qatari nationals


Pakistan will issue a visa on arrival to Qatari passport holders, the Qatar Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Monday.

“Pakistani authorities have decided to grant all Qatari passport holders immediate entry visas (tourist/visit) for one or several trips and for a period of 30 days which is extendable for an additional 30 days,” stated a press release by Qatar MOFA.

However, those seeking a Pakistani visa will have to produce documents including a valid passport for at least six months, a round trip ticket and a cash equivalent of $1500 or a valid credit card.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Pakistan (PTI) government had announced of easing travel restrictions to revive tourism by offering visas on arrival to visitors from 50 countries and electronic visas to 175 nationalities in January 2019.

Earlier in March, the government had launched an on-arrival visa facility for citizens of the United Kingdom (UK), Turkey, China, Malaysia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
