Is Pakistan safe to travel?

Unfortunately, most state advisories and media (print or electronic) have advised against visiting Pakistan. These negative reports have caused tourists to believe that Pakistan is an unsafe destination. However, many of the criticisms of Pakistan’s safety are not accurate, and it is 100% safe place to travel. People of Pakistan are typically very hospitable, friendly, warm welcoming and peace-loving.

Do I need Visa?

Yes, all foreigners coming to Pakistan need a visa and a valid passport to travel to Pakistan. There are several kinds of visas, and you have to apply for the right one. We suggest visiting the nearest embassy website, visit the embassy in person or talk to a visa officer on the phone.

How to get Visa?

Visas can be arranged from a Pakistani Embassy in your country. For your application, you will need supporting documents including a letter of invitation. A local tour operator can issue you a letter of invitation once you book a tour.

What is best way to travel and reduce the cost?

Group traveling is often the most cheap and fun way to travel for tourists. If your budget is limited, we suggest that you consider travelling in a group. Group travel allows for splitting of large costs, such as hotel rooms, transport, and guides. However, some tourists just want to travel by themselves because they want flexibility in their trip. It is true that group tour program are more difficult to alter because of one traveler.

How to come to Pakistan?

By Air: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is the national airline operating direct flights to and from some countries, but there are many international airlines operating flights to major cities of Pakistan (Islamabad, Peshawar, Lahore & Karachi).

By Road: Pakistan has an extensive network of roads and highways, linking every large city and small town. There are several highways like the Grand Trunk Road (G.T. Road) between Karachi and Peshawar (N-5), Super Highway and National Highway linking Karachi with interior Sindh and Punjab, Indus Highway (N-55) linking Peshawar with Southern Punjab, RCD Highway (N-25) linking Karachi and Quetta and on to Taftan (N-40 Pak-Iran border) and the Karakoram Highway (N-35) joining Islamabad with Kashgar (China) through Abbottabad, Gilgit, Hunza and Khunjerab Pass. A landmark has been achieved with the completion of the Islamabad-Peshawar (M-1), Lahore-Islamabad Motorway (M2), Karachi-Gwader (N-10) and the Faisalabad-Pindi Bhatian Motorway (M3), which has opened some of the remote areas of Pakistan for visitors.

What to Eat?

Pakistani food is normally high in proteins. Having inherited the culinary traditions of the Moghuls, the Turks, the Central Asians and the Iranians, eating out in Pakistan is a rich experience. Most local restaurants serve authentic Pakistani dishes straight from the oven, with the sights and sounds of a bazaar in the background. Meat, fish, and vegetable dishes are seasoned with spices. Particularly palatable are the grills and barbecues; Seekh-Kabab (minced meat grilled on a skewer), Shami-Kabab (minced meat), Tikka (barbecued mutton, beef or chicken) and Saji (barbecued leg of lamb). Pakistani mutton and chicken curries and the oriental rice dish called, Pullao, are also popular with natives and foreigners alike. In the meantime, you may need some precautions in going to local restaurants and avoid quite low standard local restaurant for hygiene reasons.

What to Wear?

Lightweight, cotton clothes suffice all over Pakistan, except in the north during the winter months. Men wear western suits in urban areas at official occasions or at social events. Otherwise, casual shalwar kameez is commonly worn by one and all. We encourage and recommend that women visitors should dress modestly in loose shirts and trousers to respect the culture and as well as to avoid any bad attentions. We also suggest that women bring a scarf for visiting Islamic monuments or shrines.

What to Buy?

Pakistan is a treasure house of exquisite handicrafts. The artisans here pass down the expertise from one generation to another. Weaving, pottery, tile-work, inlays in metal, wood, and stone, are all found here. Pottery here is a living art, with its origins dating back to 3,000 B.C. Today, each region of Pakistan claims its own specialty in jars and jugs, from sturdy terracotta to paper-thin ceramics, in vivid colors of mustard yellow, deep green, brick red and sky blue. For those who are keen shoppers, the prices are quite reasonable. You will find yourself returning home with hand-woven carpets, marble pieces, copper and brass items, woodwork, embroidered “Kurtas” and “Khussas” and countless objects.

How to communicate with locals?

English is the official language in Pakistan. Most people speak English, and you can always easily find people speak with. The most common language is Urdu, but it is not compulsory to learn for every traveler. However, if you wish to learn some basic words locals are open to teaching you. There are a few examples in the local language:

“Salaam Alaikum,” the Arabic greeting meaning “Peace be onto you,” is the standard salutation among Pakistanis. The greeting is routinely deployed whenever and wherever Muslims gather and interact.

“Kia Haal He?” How are you?

“”Me Teekh hon? I am fine
