All types of visas stopped for Pakistanis, Iranians, Syrians and Iraqis

I am a Pakistani. Recently, I went to the Farwaniya Immigration Department to get a visit visa for my wife but the clerk at the counter refused to even accept my application, saying that all types of visas had been put on hold for Pakistanis. Is this news true?

Name withheld

: Unfortunately it is. Recently, the Arab Times published a news item from an Interior Ministry official who said that issues of all types of visas had been stopped for Pakistanis, Iranians, Syrians and Iraqis.
Yours is not the first complaint that has reached us on this issue. No reason has been given for the ban and officials also don’t know when it will be lifted.

blocked listSrivi | 5/17/2011 12:13:20 PM Yes, Pakistan Visa is stopped long back, due to security reasons and terrorist activities. In recent list, syria, iran,iraq and some more countries are black listed. Next day some other official declared, it is not true. confused by govt officials itself. But, pakistan was blacklisted long back, for new visas. Currently, no scope, when the ban will be lifted. It is depends upon govt policy to review the situation
