Visitors to Pakistan typically must obtain a visa from one of the Pakistani diplomatic missions abroad.

Pakistani missions abroad offer various categories of visas, with some travelers eligible for visa on arrival if traveling as part of a group tour, or for business. Pakistan does not offer visa-on- arrival for individual tourists, though nationals of some countries do not require a visa for travel to Pakistan.

Applicants must typically apply for visas in their country of origin, but may apply from a third country if they are legal permanent residents of that country
