  2. Hi, my wife has got a NIC issued from Canberra, Australia. Does she need to apply for NICOP too, to be able to travel to Pakistan or NIC would suffice?


    1. Dear Mr.Muhammad Syed,

      As you are aware, valid Pakistani Passport or NICOP is enough to travel to Pakistan. Although, the CNIC or SNIC (Smart NIC) are not considered as NICOP, it seems better for you to consult your travel agents. If they suggest for NICOP, it will not be difficult for you to apply for NICOP. However, your travel agents may possibly adopt for you some other easy ways in light of their experience.

      Best regards.

    1. Dear Mr.Waqas Sharif,

      In respect of Fee-Structure (or Fee-Detail), both Zone-A and Zone-B are just the lists of countries. As there are different laws or the rates of their currencies, these countries are divided into two lists or Zones, just for the convenience of people. Otherwise, there is no big difference between them.

      Best Regards.

    1. Dear Mr.Zeeshan,

      Yes, it is possible to change your signature. Take your original CNIC to NADRA Centre for this purpose.


      1. Dear Mr.Nabeel,

        Your NICOP’s record is maintained by NADRA and we are not in a position to tell the card’s “expiry date” and “issue date.” You will have no problem if you please contact NADRA, online or personally.

        Best regards.

    1. Dear Mr.Asad,

      NICOP is actually the CNIC issued to Pakistanis living abroad.

      With best regards,
