NADRA TO SET UP ONLINE VISA SYSTEM IN PAKISTAN
ISLAMABAD – As controversy involving the issuance of visas to foreigners by the previous PPP government made headlines recently, the Ministry of Interior on Monday directed the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to establish an online centralised databank for issuance of visas to foreigners.
After implementation of the decision, the visa issuance system at the Ministry of Interior and at all Pakistani missions abroad would connect and go online — a move that will make the country’s visa issuance system more transparent.
The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan here on Monday.
The interior minister said that the new mechanism would help foreigners get an online visa appointment for any category for travelling to Pakistan. “At the same time, it will bring transparency and clarity in the system,” a spokesperson for the ministry said while quoting the minister. The manual visa issuance system had many loopholes.
The interior minister directed the NADRA to develop the online system for issuance of visas so that everything should come on record and there should be no space for irregularity.
