Pakistani passportPakistani passports are issued to the citizens of Pakistan for the purpose of international travel. Directorate General of Immigration & Passports of Ministry of Interior is responsible for issuing passports. Pakistan’s machine-readable and biometric passports are currently being issued from regional passport offices and Pakistani embassies.

In 2004, Pakistan became one of the first countries in the world to issue the bio metric passports, which are, according to the publisher, compliant with ICAO standards and dubbed Multi-biometric e Passports. They do not carry the “chip inside” symbol (EPassport logo.svg), which is mandatory for ICAO-standard electronic passports, however Ministry of Interior is planning to start issuing E-Passport in coming years to Pakistani citizens. As of 2012, Pakistan has adopted the Multi-bio-metric e-Passport that is now compliant with ICAO standards. More than 7 million passports have been issued until now. The passports are printed by the governmental agency NADRA. From January 2014, passports are being issued with 5 and 10 years validity.

Pakistan forbids its citizens from going to Israel by putting the legend ‘This passport is valid for all countries of the World except Israel’ on Pakistani passports.
