Qatari passport holders granted visa on arrival to Pakistan

15 June 2023 - The Pakistani authorities have decided to grant holders of Qatari passports (Ordinary, Special, and Diplomatic) tourist or visit entry visas, upon arrival at any border point.

To obtain the visa on arrival in Pakistan, Qatari nationals must have their passports valid for at least six months and hold a travel itinerary (return ticket) alongside proof of funds to be able to cover their costs during their stay in Pakistan. 

The visa on arrival will be issued for a period of 30 days, which can be extended for an additional period of 30 days without paying any fees or additional requirements.
