Note: Currently this service is available for applicants outside Pakistan.
Before launching this facility, the Pakistani Diaspora had to travel long distances to process their passports. However, through Online Passport Facility our esteemed expatriates can submit passport applications from home and receive their passports at their doorstep. Through the Online Passport facility, we aspire to provide quality service to our clients in Foreign Countries efficiently. As of December 2021, almost seven lac twenty thousand passports have been dispatched and received by the applicants at their doorstep without visiting any Foreign Mission through this service. Applicants can apply for a passport before one year of expiring date in the renewal category.
