I didn't get one thing, if someone could explain. So, as per my little understanding, e-visa and visa on arrival are two different things but the above picture says e-visa on arrival? What's that? New policy already says e-visa will be issued within 7-10 days of applying.

Why India may not be a big fan of Pakistan’s new visa policy

Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “Naya Pakistan” (“New Pakistan”) just passed legislation loosening the country’s previously difficult visa procedure to allow for most of the world’s nationalities to either receive one on arrival or electronically, which will not only boost tourism and facilitate business dealings but impressively show the international community that Azad Kashmir is truly free and not “Pakistan-occupied” like India falsely alleges.

Pakistan just unprecedentedly passed legislation loosening its previously difficult visa procedure to allow for most of the world’s nationalities to either receive one on arrival or electronically as part of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “Naya Pakistan” (“New Pakistan”) vision of revolutionizing his country’s domestic and foreign affairs, with it being expected that this will immensely boost its tourism industry and facilitate the clinching of international business deals along the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).



The future influx of tourists to Pakistan’s world-renowned mountains and beaches will help to dispel the country’s negative reputation that was manipulatively cultivated by the US and India as part of their years-long infowar on it, powerfully proving that Pakistan has been deliberately misportrayed this entire time and prompting people to question what else the Western Mainstream Media is lying about when it comes to the South Asian state.



As for the business angle of this decision, Pakistan can greatly speed up the time that it takes for it to actualize its geopolitical destiny as the “Zipper of Eurasia” in utilizing CPEC as a platform for supercontinental integration, which can ultimately culminate in it becoming the “Convergence of Civilizations” by bringing together the diverse interests of China, Central Asia, Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Arabs, and Africa and counteracting the US’ “Clash of Civilizations” stratagem.

The most immediate impact of PM Khan’s move, however, is that people will be able to see that Azad Kashmir (“Free Kashmir”) is truly free and not “Pakistan-occupied” like India falsely alleges, which can importantly help the country contradict one of the most malicious myths spread about it since independence because the rest of the world will be able to see with their own eyes that the population there doesn’t behave like their counterparts across the Line of Control.


The part of Kashmir under India’s control can legitimately be described as Indian-occupied because of how much the population is fiercely resisting New Delhi’s “authority” in response to the rampant abuses that the state regularly carries out against them, which it actually goes to great lengths to suppress by shutting down the internet and assassinating activists in cold blood, to say nothing of barring most foreigners (and especially journalists) from the region for “security purposes”.

Altogether, the grand strategic impact of “Naya Pakistan’s” visa liberalization law is that the country is confidently opening up to the outside world in order to bring regular folks, businesspeople, and ultimately even entire civilizations together on its territory, which will showcase its recent socio-economic and security successes while simultaneously having a powerful effect in reshaping international perceptions, especially when it comes to Kashmir because of how much Pakistan’s transparency contrasts with India’s secrecy.

BEIJING: Pakistan Ambassador to China, Masood Khalid Thursday termed the new visa regime as an important initiative and said it would attract more tourists and businessmen from across the globe and help overcome challenges to the economy.

“The primary objective of the visa free policy is to facilitate the people who intend to visit Pakistan,” he said after the inauguration of the new visa system by Prime Minister Imran Khan for five countries including China, Turkey, Malaysia, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. The ceremony was shown live via video conference.

Terming it as a very good step in the right direction, he observed that as the prime minister said the new visa regime would promote our business, tourism and economy.

Ambassador Khalid informed that during the last six months, the government had taken a number of steps to encourage investment and tourism in the country, adding, “It is a vision and the government is working on it.”

He endorsed the prime minister’s remarks that Pakistan had great potential for the tourism as it had a beautiful landscape, historical and religious places.

Ambassador Khalid said the government was paying attention to improve facilities for the tourists and said last year, 55,000 Chinese businessmen and workers were issued visas by Pakistan Embassy Beijing and its four consulates.

He expressed the confidence that the number of Chinese tourists would further grow in months to come.

He pointed out that the increasing number of tourists from China was a manifestation of the fact that the relations between Pakistan and China were growing at a fast pace and the Chinese people had an ample interest to explore Pakistani markets and its tourist destinations.


Ambassador Khalid also commended the services of the visa section of the embassy for facilitating Chinese businessmen and workers particularly after the launch of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects.

He also directed the embassy staff to further improve their behavior and leave a good impression during public dealings.

Senior diplomats, officials and Pakistani community attended the ceremony.
