Hello, dear vagabonds!
I have recently (over a month ago) applied for a e-visa of tourist type, and after a few days I was asked to provide some additional documents (such as LOI, certificate of employment etc.). I have provided those documents on October 7th. Today marks the 12th working day since the provision of documents, and the estimate of tourist visa processing time amounts to 7-10 working days. The visa application status is in-process, and I haven't received any other mail. I have sent an e-mail out via the contact page on visa.nadra.gov.pk two days ago, but to no avail. Thus, I have a question. Is the visa application processing centralized, or is it being processed at the regional embassy (Embassy of Pakistan in Warsaw, Poland in that case)? If so, has anyone experienced any regional disparities in the visa processing time? My long flight (3 stops) to Pakistan is about to commence on October 30th.
Has anybody applying for a e-visa actually paid a visit to the embassy unannounced in order to clarify things?
A few things about my "ordinary" application just in case:
- 26 yo, employed, flying in and out of Islamabad airport
- visiting Islamabad, Lahore, and Gilgit-Baltistan
- hotel booking confirmations for all nights + LOI
