All About the Pakistan Visa
Pakistan’s Electronic Visa (eVisa) system is available to visitors from 175 countries. The eVisa application is a convenient way for tourists to obtain authorisation without travelling to an embassy. Almost everyone is required to apply for a visa to be able to visit the home of the Karakoram mountain highway, and Byevisa has made it easy to apply for a Pakistan tourist visa online.
If you’re from Australia, Canada, Europe, the US, New Zealand or the UK, you need a visa for Pakistan and you can get one online by filling out our application form. On the other hand, if you’re from India, you must apply at an embassy.
This authorisation for most eligible nationalities is valid for 90 days starting from the date you receive it, and you may stay for a maximum of 30 days. Meanwhile, US citizens are eligible for a tourist visa that is valid for 5 years and allows a 90-day maximum stay.
E-Visas to enter this South Asian nation can be either Single Entry or Multiple Entry.
A Pakistan e-Visa fee varies between 8.00 USD and 90.00 USD depending on your nationality and whether you choose Single or Multiple Entry. In addition, Byevisa charges a processing fee to handle your paperwork, starting as low as 40.00 USD.

What’s the Difference Between an eVisa and a Pakistan Visa on Arrival (VoA)?
An Electronic Visa (eVisa) is obtained online in advance of your trip and saves you time by eliminating the need to fill out paperwork at a consulate or embassy.
Byevisa is the smartest way to apply for your eVisa online. We process your paperwork on your behalf, and when it’s approved we send your authorisation to you by email.
On the other hand, a Visa on Arrival (VoA) is obtained upon arrival at the port of entry. While Pakistan offers a Visa on Arrival to some nationalities, to be eligible, travellers must obtain an electronic authorisation in advance. To find out more click here.
