I applied for a Pak tourist visa on 31-05-19 but after 11 days the status is still showing as 'receiving'. It says the processing time is between 7-10 days, so I am getting a bit concerned. I have received the email to say that my application was submitted successfully and my fee went through fine. I have also tried contacting the ministry twice but with no response as yet.
If I don't hear anything back in another week or so, should I apply for a VOA instead/as well? The VOAs seem to be processed much faster from what I have read so far. I would rather avoid this though, as I have already paid the fee!
I might be being a tad impatient
Really appreciate any insight you can offer
The website states 7-10 working days processing time. June 5th-7th are government holidays in Pakistan so you may have to wait a bit longer.
According to the site's FAQ section: An applicant can make a single application on an individual passport at a time.
So I'm not sure if the system will allow you to make an application for a different visa category on the same passport.
Do let us know if you receive your e-visa, and also any reply from the online visa team.
Best of luck!
