Pakistani tourist visa in New DelhiHi everyone,
Has anyone had any recent or previous experience of getting a Pakistani visa in New Delhi? I've got 3 months in India cut short by the decline of my 6 month visa and was thinking about heading to Pakistan. There doesn't seem to be much recent info on this topic on the thorn tree and internet resources are well, sparse!
Any help or assistance would be great!

1It has been quite a while since Pakistani embassies has stopped issuing visas in host countries. You can get Pakistani visa back in home country with a letter of invitation from a Pakistan based tour operator.

2As mentioned above,it has been some that Pakistani embassies have called off granting tourist visas (except country of origin) in third countries so no hope in New Delhi.

3mmm damn, that sucks. I've been travelling for over 10 months now and not planning on going home anytime soon. I might have to just go down there and ask. The Pakistan High Commission in Delhi's website still gives instructions and forms for Pakistan visas, so i guess I'll find out soon enough. Thanks for the reply guys.

7Bonjour from Islamabad,
New Delhi, Kathmandu and Tehran used to be great places for a Pakistan visa but no more as stated above, Pakistan's stopped granting visas to non-locals in the above mentioned cities.
The best option for the travelers to Pakistan is to apply in their home town in the Pakistan visa and that'd require
Sometimes hotel bookings from a tour outfitter in Pakistan .
Good luck ..

9Went down to the embassy today guys and found out a bunch of stuff.
It is possible to get a Pakistani tourist visa at the Kathmandu embassy. However, the waiting time I imagine is put there to discourage people from trying. It would be a 4-10 week processing wait and then a further 2-4 week visa in passport period. So you'd really be looking to spend about 2-3 months getting a tourist visa from this embassy.
If I had known this when I first came to Nepal I would of applied then. So if there is anyone out there that is planning on going to Pakistan after Nepal and if you're spending a significant amount of time in Nepal, apply for the Pakistani visa as soon as you arrive.
They have forms down at the embassy and let you fill them out by hand. To make things easier find a reputable travel agent in Pakistan and get them to write you out a Visa Recommendation form or something along the lines of that.
The embassy also told me that the visas are valid for 6 months from the issue date.
