In a significant development, the Pakistani government has set up a dedicated support desk in Islamabad aimed at providing vital assistance to the country’s overseas citizens. Jawad Saharab, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, announced this initiative, which is poised to streamline services and address the needs of overseas Pakistanis effectively.
The newly established support desk comes as a boon for overseas Pakistanis, offering a range of services that promise to make their lives easier. Among the services provided are the smooth transfer of residential plots, quick approvals for building plans, and facilitation in the payment of annual property taxes, as well as the regular settlement of water and miscellaneous charges every three months.
Jawad Saharab emphasized that this initiative is part of the government’s commitment to enhance the well-being of overseas Pakistanis. He stated that the support desk will not only provide assistance in managing property-related matters but will also extend its support to address other essential needs of the overseas community.
One notable aspect of the support desk is its ability to facilitate international driving permits, firearm licenses, and domicile certificates for overseas Pakistanis, making it easier for them to navigate through international regulations and requirements.
