Chairman OPF BOG hails NADRA for facilitating overseas Pakistanis

islamabad—The Chairman OPF Board of Governors, Barrister Amjad Malik called on Chairman National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), Usman Mobeen and discussed issues related to overseas Pakistanis including issues of National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP) being issued in various countries abroad.
The Chairman OPF Board of Governors appreciated the role of NADRA in terms of providing NICOP facility to overseas Pakistanis and said that the NICOP not only gives an identity to the overseas Pakistanis but it also helps them in their frequent travels to Pakistan as a valid visa. However, he said that there are some issue which requires the attention of Chairman NADRA for early resolution. He requested the Chairman NADRA that the NICOP should be free of cost for over sixty years of age in line with regular Pakistani identity card which is valid for life for those Pakistanis who attain the age of sixty. The charging of NICOP fee from overseas Pakistanis who are over 60 is discriminatory which is causing some unrest among them.
The Chairman BoG informed the Chairman NADRA that the fee for applying online NICOP is higher and is being charged as fast track fee.
