Pakistan National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) team will visit a number of United Kingdom cities to facilitate the Pakistanis to obtain the National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP).
Overseas Pakistanis with citizenship of a country that allows dual nationality can use NICOP to enter Pakistan without requiring obtaining entry visa if they are not using a Pakistani passport. NICOP is also the identity card for dual national holders from Pakistan who can use it where ever the Pakistan’s National Identity Card is required.
NICOP is valid for seven years as compared to the Pakistani passport with maximum validity of five years only. The processing fee for NICOP is £34 whereas the application fee for obtaining a Pakistani passport costs £32 and £52 for urgent processing. If a Pakistani origin British National wants to get a Pakistani entry visa on a British Passport, then the single entry visa charges are £44.
