Pakistan e-Visa Application

Pakistan e-Visa: Basic information

Pakistan e-visa is an electronic alternative to traditional visas that can be issued entirely online.
Travelers can use the e-visa system to visit Pakistan since December 2018 and thus simplify the entire visa processing process.
Pakistan e-visas come in three different types, two of which are for tourist purposes and one for business travel.
There are two types of single-entry tourist e-visas, both allowing a 30-day stay with varying validity periods of one or three months.
The Pakistan Business e-Visa serves as a multiple-entry visa, is valid for five years, and can be used for multiple visits lasting 30 days.
Since there is no need to go to an embassy or consulate, visitors can easily register using their phone, laptop, PC, tablet or any other work device with an internet connection.
Pakistan e-Visa processing time is usually just 14 days and the approved document will arrive at the traveler's email address in PDF format.
Our support team will assist all applicants during and after completing the application process.
Applicants can choose between three types of e-visas.Two are for travel purposes and one is designed for professional use.
This is a:
  • 30-day single-entry tourist electronic visa (valid for 30 days)

  • Multi-entry professional electronic visa is valid for 5 years with a maximum stay of 30 days
