In your case I'd suggest that you contact Pakistan Online Visa Support (https://visa.nadra.gov.pk/contact/) quoting your Visa Tracking ID.
Did you select the land border as entry point when you were applying for the VOA?
Best of luck!
my German friends have finally received ETA approvals after checking with quite few people. the reason given to us about the delay was our mistake and not theirs in the application which has been modified and now they have been granted the visa.
The visa application is so stressful. I am Malaysian, residing in Malaysia and applied for VOA online on the 11th July 3019 and I have not heard anything. The application and payment went through, I did received the notification email.
Have been calling the Nadra numbers provided for every 10 minutes interval since last Thurs until today and no one answers the phone. Called Ministry of Interior and has been passed to one after another, called more than 10 different numbers that I was redirected to.
Sent an enquiry through nadra online on the 19th July, no replies at all. Send another enquiry today and received a reply that I should check my online inbox for update. Duh... I am checking my mailbox, the online inbox and my junk mail hourly!
UK passport holder applied for Business VOA under their '' we will authorise up to 5 years multiple entry''in June 2019 under the new scheme,had visited Pakistan many times in the past. Granted multiple entry for two years. Gave my arrival point as Islamabad.
Due to commitments in other countries not able to immediately travel and two weeks later received a further authority letter changing it to 30 days single entry.
Totally confused I made enquiries and was told that the full grant will be after arriving in Pakistan.
1) Has anyone else had similar experience?
2) Due to changes in flight schedules and world affairs the other airports of Lahore and Karachi are now having more services, in fact I believe that PIA are moving their main hub away from Islamabad even though the new airport is open, therefore IF arriving at a different airport than notified will that cause a problem, I will be travelling now in August.
I appreciate that these are probably teething troubles with the system.
