This is in line with the vision of the honourable Prime Minister of Pakistan and on the directions of honorable Sayed Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis & Human Resource Development. The Government of Pakistan is according top priority to the overseas Pakistanis and is keen to provide enhanced facilities with improved service delivery.
This state of the art “OPF-DGI&P MRP Facilitation Centre” is one such initiative and testament to the citizen-centric governance model where overseas Pakistanis are exclusively facilitated.
