Imran Khan, The Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan

Nohman Ali :
Prime Minister Imran Khan recently unveiled a new and ambitious visa policy promoting tourism in Pakistan. Tourism was one of the industries that had suffered due to the deteriorating security situation in Pakistan; however, with the improvements in security scenario, better infrastructure, and promotion of tourist friendly places through internet and social media, the tourism industry was given a big boost. According to Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation, in 2017 alone, 1.75 Million tourists visited Pakistan with 30% travelers from within Pakistan. Similarly, according to World Travel and Tourism Council, revenue from tourism contributed around $19.4 Billion in 2017. This is especially important for a country facing Current Account Deficit (CAD) problems.
With the new visa policy, it is expected that the tourism industry would be given a further boost. Visa fees have been slashed by 22% to 65%, and the process would only take 7-10 working days,an improvement from 4-6 weeks and sometime even more. Prime Minister Imran Khan while unveiling the new visa policy, highlighted the tourism potential and diversity of Pakistan. From religious sites to cultural hearths, cold deserts to towering mountains, fertile plains of Punjab to awe-inspiring mountains of Balochistan, beautiful lakes to pristine traditions of hospitality and mouth-watering food, Pakistan has it all. Here are some sitesthat you would like to visit in Pakistan:-
