Pakistan’s consulate in Jalalabad set to resume visa operation

Islamabad: Pakistan’s consulate in Jalalabad city of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province will resume its visa operation from Monday (today) after over a month-long closure forced by security concerns and interference of Afghan officials in its working.
In August, Pakistan shut down its consulate in Jalalabad citing security concerns and ‘undue interference’ by the governor of Nangarhar province in its working.
A Foreign Office spokesperson, Dr Muhammad Faisal, in a statement on Sunday said: “Pakistan’s Consulate General in Jalalabad which was closed on 30th August 2018 will resume its visa operations, after assurances by the Afghan government that all necessary and required security will be provided to the Consulate Generalz.”
“All visa applicants in Jalalabad and surrounding areas within the jurisdiction of the Consulate General could now apply for visa with the Consulate General with effect from Monday 8th October 2018.”
