Accordion to Fawad Chaudhry, the Federal Minister for Information of Pakistan, citizens of the United Arab Emirates can now easily get visa on arrival when they travel to Pakistan. Further details of this scheme will be revealed by the authorities later.
Nonetheless, it is interesting to note that this scheme may also offer UAE citizens the option of a one-month visa that allows for multiple entries.
The fact is that Pakistan has recently announced that major reforms will take place in its visa policies so as to give a boost to its tourism industries. Fawad Chaudhry stated that previously not only tourists but also journalists had to face a number of problems whenever they chose to visit Pakistan.
Thanks to the reforms, Pakistan is now going to allow 175 nations to enjoy the convenience of e-visas. At the same time, people from 50 nations will gain access to visa on arrival. Business visas will also be made available to a total of 98 nations.
