The Pakistan Origin Card (POC) aims to give qualifying foreigners unprecedented benefits while also ensuring that Pakistan remains firmly engaged with experts around the world.
- Multiple visa-free visits to Pakistan are possible.
- Stay in Pakistan indefinitely with no need to report to the police or foreigners’ registration agencies, etc.
A foreign national who is married to a Pakistani citizen or a Pakistani national who has renounced nationality to gain foreign nationality, or whose parents or grandparents are or were Pakistani nationals, will be granted POC. POCs have the same rights as NICOPs, with the exception that they cannot vote or seek a Pakistani passport because they are of Pakistani descent rather than nationality.
Benefits of Having POC:
Here are some advantages of POC you would have:
- You can enter Pakistan without a visa.
- You can stay for days there, months, or years in Pakistan if you have POC.
- Having POC allows you to buy and sell the property.
- You will be granted the ability to open and operate bank accounts.
