Like we told you earlier about the NADRA’s online passport system that they have been developing for quite some time now and it appears that we have finally a sneak peak of what it will look like at the time of launch.
NADRA and Directorate General of Immigration and Passports have collaborated to offer Pakistani citizens a service that they badly needed, i.e. to be able renew their passports online without going to Passport offices.
Service would be aimed for both Pakistanis living in Pakistan and abroad.
Service is currently not available immediately, but it is said that service will be made available very soon now.
Anyone with an expired passport or if its validity is less than 7 months would be able to ahead and apply for passports online and get the renewed passport delivered to a designated postal address.
