Re: NOC for Hunza/Gilgit/Skardu (Pakistan)?

NOC is not required for those areas and hasn't been required for a while.

Re: Afghan visa in Islamabad

Applied two weeks ago. No LOI needed, but they will ask for a letter of permission from your embassy. Just firmly tell them that your embassy does not give these. Needed a colour copy of passport, and a single passport sized photo (bring two to be safe). You will get a visa form to fill out at the e...

Re: Embassy report: Afghanistan embassy in Ottawa

Hello, I'm a Canadian citizen and was wondering which of the following visa should I get for Afghanistan? Single Entry Visitor’s Visa – One Month or Tourist One Month Visa. Not sure what the difference is. I'd be spending a day in Afghanistan along the Wahkan corridor. Thanks! Carol I emailed them ...

Re: Pakistan High Commission Ottawa LOI Tourist Visa

Good luck!

I made a slightly more detailed write-up on applying at the Ottawa High Commission for anyone who comes across this thread in the future.

Re: Pakistan e-visa and VOA Q&A

So, looks like the official e-visa site has been released. https://visa.nadra.gov.pk/ Currently only five countries can get it, but it says they will be adding more countries soon. For tourist visa, it looks like you can provide hotel bookings instead of a LOI (If I'm understanding it properly). I j...

Re: HELP: Pakistan Visa: How long is it valid?!?

Pretty sure the embassy just gave you the standard 3 month validity; meaning that you can enter Pakistan any time BEFORE May 27th.

So you may need to apply for a new visa :/

Re: Pakistan High Commission Ottawa LOI Tourist Visa

Got my visa! I submitted my application on a Friday morning and received a call on Monday saying it was ready to be picked up. Only 1 business day processing time!

Cost was $105 CAD (they take credit card). Got a 30-day visa with 3-month validity (what I applied for).

Re: Pakistan High Commission Ottawa LOI Tourist Visa

I'm going in again today... I went last week, but instead of having me bring in a printed copy of the LOI or have me email them a copy, they wanted the LOI provider to email them a copy. So I did that, and now they've told me I can come in again and apply. Takes a while to figure anything out, as th...

Re: Enter Before - Chinese Visa

No, you don't need to activate it, it's a valid visa. You can enter China as many times as you want from now until February 2029, and each visit must be no longer than the 'days per entry' on your visa.
