Entry into Pakistan - only permitted with a valid visa

Germans, Austrians, Swiss, Turks and citizens of other European countries need a visa to enter Pakistan. The border officials reject foreign travelers without a valid entry permit. So that this does not happen to you and your trip to sights such as the Fort Shahi Qila in Lahore or the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad is a success, you should book your visa in advance via the responsible consulate or our website.

Exemptions exist only for business people with an official letter of recommendation and tourists who have booked a trip through selected Pakistani tour operators. They are free to apply for a Visa on Arrival (VOA). However, the Visa on Arrival carries the residual risk that the authorities responsible for entry will reject the application on site.

Where can I get an entry permit for Pakistan before departure / departure?

The Pakistani diplomatic missions in your home country issue the pre-travel visa, which is compulsory for most visitors. In Germany, for example, the Pakistani Embassy in Berlin and the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in Frankfurt a. M. is responsible for issuing visas. Applicants have the opportunity to submit their visa application in person.

Which visas are the right ones and which conditions have to be met?

Pakistan distinguishes between several categories of visas, depending on the intention to travel. B. Tourist Visa and Business Visa. Applicants are required to truthfully state the purpose of their visit. Otherwise there is a risk of fines and expulsion.
