Pakistan has allowed group tourists visa on arrival for 24 countries including the US and UK to attract more and more visitors from other countries. According to an FIA notification, tourists will be given multiple entry 30-day visas. The visit to Pakistan will need to be organized through a designated tour operator. The tour operator will be required to furnish tourist documents to the FIA Immigration Office with a requisite undertaking. Business visa on arrival will also be issued to citizens from 68 countries. Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has approached authorities concerned to review visa policy for foreign tourists. “We will focus on overseas Pakistanis and foreign tourists during year 2018. Visa policy for foreign tourists is required to be reviewed to facilitate more tourists from across the world,” says Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor, managing director of the PTDC. “We have also requested civil aviation to provide places at all international airports in the country to set-up Tourism Information Desks,” he said. Ghafoor said in a written statement that Pakistan was ranked on top by British Backpacker Society among twenty top travel destinations for 2018.
