Do you know that overseas Pakistanis can now get their Pakistani passport renewed online and delivered to their home address?

Nadra, the Ministry of Interior’s authority for passports and immigration, has released an Immigration and Passport e-Services Portal for overseas Pakistanis.

According to the website, e-Services Portal is the front door to Directorate General of Immigration and Passports (DGI&P) for online service for Pakistani citizens around the world.

Currently, this service is not available to Pakistani citizens in-country.

You can apply for passport renewal here.

You can use e-Services Portal to apply for renewal of your Machine Readable Passport (MRP), if your passport has expired OR its validity is less than 7 months.

Once in the portal, you can use the services you want. Image below.

    • Wali Zahid

      W/Salam Sohail. Sorry to hear. We only posted this as information for our overseas readers. You need to reach out to an official agency.

  • sonia

    Where and how can I download bio-metric fingerprint form for renewal Pakistani passport if the guide is every where why cant you manage to give answer where can we download the actual form for fingerprints and down lode, 2 people ask you same question but no answer why can t you make it easier for us to create download form option in there same like its in id card renewal have .

  • Chuadhry

    First of all , whoever designed this site, Did a poor job. Actual fingerprint downloads are available once you register to the site. Once you are registered and start the application process, then you see the option on the menu to download the actual fingerprint form. What’s confusing is that the official video of finger printing tutorial shows few sections as” not required” . However , the actual form has all the sections blank.

  • Waqar Hossain

    I am surprised, nowhere to be find the information on as to, where the hell to find the fingerprint form for the MRP online application.

  • Waqar Hossain

    Never mind, I just read the previous posts and got my solution. But they could have at least mention this in their guides!
