How to Get a Journalist Visa for Pakistan

Pakistan Journalist Visa

Pakistan Journalist Visa

Are you going to Pakistan to cover a story?  If so, you are going to need to get a Journalist Visa.

The best and most authoritative description of the Journalist Visa for Pakistan is here at the Pakistan Directorate General of Immigration and Passports.

One thing to note as you are gathering all the paperwork for the Journalist Visa is that there can be a pretty big difference from Consulate to Consulate in terms of what is required.

(Go to my Pakistan visa page for information on other types of visas for Pakistan.)

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Pakistan Journalist Visa.

Find your consulate
  • If you’re inside the U.S., go to this link at the Embassy of Pakistan (in Washington D.C.) website.
    • At the very top of the page, it will say “Consulates.”
    • Unless, you live in the Washington D.C. jurisdiction, you can click on that “Consulates” link to find the consulate that services your jurisdiction (based on your State).
Gather the required documents
  • The required documents can vary quite considerably depending on where you apply.  You need to check the website of the embassy or consulate you found in Step 1 in order to find the required documents for your particular situation.  The required documents should look a lot like this page here at the Consulate of Pakistan (New York, NY).
Visa Fee
  • Visa fees will depend on what country you are from.  You are going to need to go to the website of the Embassy or Consulate you found in Step 1.  However, as a guideline in order to get a ballpark figure, you can see this page here at the Consulate of Pakistan (New York, NY).
Submit your materials
  • Submission instructions will vary from consulate to consulate and embassy to embassy, so you will need to check the submission instructions at the website of the embassy or consulate you found in Step 1.

The Embassy or Consulate of Pakistan will give to you your brand new Pakistan visa.
