What is an Exit Permit?

An exit permit is an official document or certificate that grants a person authorization to leave a country. It is possible that a traveller’s visa expires, gets stolen or is lost. In such a situation, it will become impossible for the foreign traveller to leave the country. An exit permit is exclusively offered to facilitate travellers facing such an issue.

A Pakistan exit permit is acquired by foreigners who do not possess a valid Pakistani visa, either due to visa expiration, cancellation, or rejection and want to exit the country. The government of Pakistan grants it, and the visa approval is upon the government’s prerogative. If a foreign child is born in the country, they will also need an exit permit to leave the country along with the child’s birth certificate.

If you have overstayed your visa in Pakistan, in that case, you will have to wait for 3 to 20 business days to obtain an exit visa. It is important to note that overstaying your visa in Pakistan is an illegal act and may have some unfavourable consequences, including an overstay surcharge and prison sentence. Those foreign travellers who want to obtain an extension in their visa must submit their application at least one month before their visas expire because there’s no condonation of overstay charges.

Eligibility Criteria for Exit Permit

In order to apply for a Pakistan exit permit, travellers must meet the following conditions.

  • Foreign nationals of Pakistan origin if they have exceeded the maximum overstay limit of up to or more than one year. They are the nationals of any of the 191 countries that require a visa to enter and stay in Pakistan.
  • The applicant’s visa has been cancelled or rejected.
  • The applicant’s visa has expired.
  • All foreign nationals who have reached a maximum overstay limit of one year.

  • Valid passport
  • Passport-size photograph
  • Proof of confirmed air ticket
  • Proof of previous Pakistani visa
  • Proof of arrival into Pakistan
  • A rejection or cancellation letter issued by the Ministry of Interior (this requirement applies to those travellers whose visa was rejected or cancelled).

Pakistan Exit Permit Duration and Validity

Pakistan Exit Permit is generally valid for fifteen days if granted against your application. During this period, the traveller/applicant must mandatorily leave the country.

What is the Exit Permit Processing Time?

The exit permit is issued at the prerogative of the Pakistani government. But online applications are typically processed within 48 to 72 hours.

There is a possibility that the application is sent back to the applicant for review. The same processing time will be applicable again if this happens. It must be noted that the processing time will re-commence from the day/date the applicant resubmitted the application.
