KABUL, 14 October, 2020, (TON): Embassy of Pakistan in Kabul in a press release on Monday said that urgent measures are taken to facilitate Pakistani visas for Afghan nationals and Pakistan’s Consulate in Jalalabad, Kandahar, Heart and Mazar-e-Sharif have started issuing visas to Afghan nationals in their respective jurisdictions.

The Embassy said “Under the new visa policy, long term multiple visas are being issued to the Afghan nationals for visiting Pakistan for medical treatment, family matters, business, education and other purposes”.

“As the visa facility has opened recently after many months of restrictions due to COVID-19, there is a significant backlog causing large crowds of visa applicants at Embassy’s and Consulates’ windows. The Embassy seeks the understanding and cooperation of the applicants as well as the Afghan security authorities for ensuring effective management of the submission and collection of visa applications with a view to hopefully clear the backlog in the coming days,” the embassy concluded.

It is important to mention that Pakistani visa for Afghans is free. Applicants are not required to pay any amount except for the visa fee for the business category and there are no agents.
