I am thinking of going to Pakistan in June. Downloaded the Visa application form from the High Com website, but I am not sure how to fill in Part 17.
Can anyone help?

17. Name and address of person who will furnish information about the applicant and offer financial guarantee for maintenance, repatriation, if applied for
(a) In the Country of the Applicant

(b) In Pakistan



Do you also need to show confirmed return air tickets?

Thanks.

I suggest u give them a call and ask. If they cannot answer your question over the phone, fill up whatever u can, and go to the consulate to ask. I dun quite remember encountering this part when I filled it up 2 years ago...

you don't need to fill in that.just bring the photo and the application form and $25.don't need to show confirmed return tickets too.at least i didn't get my tix before getting the visa.i got visa for single entry though...the visa guy said 1st time entry can only apply single entry permit. but i vaguely remembered that boochap said he got multiple entry for his.so maybe you ask him if you need multiple.

Thanks for all your replies.

Hi Fang,

I don't mind single entry. How long was your visa by the way?
I remember hearing something about some kind of letter (of introduction? of invitation?). Do you need to submit some kind of letter too?

Thanks.

Oh no. I am going from Singapore direct. I have at most 2 to 2+ weeks holidays nia :(

Can't seems to find a decent flight there either.
Emirates via Dubai to Islamabad (long layover), SQ via Karachi to Lahore, or Thai via Bangkok to Islamabad (got long or short layovers).
All expensive :icon_pale:
Aim is to get to Northern Areas, so I guess Islamabad is more convenient.

Abit rush to try to get up to Northern Pakistan and back in 2 weeks. Try for more time if u can as transportation there is really unpredictable.

Anyway, it is easy to get visa extension in Gilgit if needed, and an interesting experience too.  ;)

Fang should be leaving soon I think, enjoy yourself and thanks for being my postman!  8)

No cheap tix I'm afraid. The TG one is about S$10xx I think.
EK one is S$899. SQ one is S$1199!!!
So near yet so inconvenient and expensive! Might as well fly to Kathmandu for my mountains and valleys fix :P

Crap! I got a 14-days single entry visa :(
How? Should I book my air tickets for 2 weeks first, or for 23 days as I have planned?
Is it easy to get a visa extension in pakistan? Esp Gilgit?

Cheers. But a bit sian ....

extension very easy.. take 1 whole morning.
that officer who did the extension for me was hilarious.
he wrote me a wrong date, got the commissioner to sign, afterthat i found out the mistake, almost bengz on his table and curse and swear. he liquid paper and overwrote the correct date on it. and i got him sign on a separate piece of paper with his phone number, that become useful when i crossed the border at Sost 2 week later..  ;D

Hi Boochap,

Where did you do your extension?
Need to pay or prepare any documents or not?

Thanks! :)

Haha fang, dun be envious :P
Hope you enjoyed your stay in Pakistan.

Any tips and hints for me?  ;D
Is it really hot, or cold?

Oh by the way, how do you intend to get home from China?
Do we need Chinese visa to enter China via the Khunjerab Pass?

Enjoy your remaining trip.
