Overseas Pakistanis can renew passports online
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.
