Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday urged the Kuwait government to review its visa restriction policy for Pakistan, according to a statement issued by the Foreign Office.
“Pakistan has taken effective measures to curb use of illegal documents for traveling purposes. In this regard, the Kuwait government is urged to review its visa restriction policy,” the foreign minister said while talking to his Kuwaiti counterpart Sabah Al Khalid Al Sabah in Kuwait City.
The foreign minister said that more than 0.1 million overseas Pakistanis are playing a dynamic role in development of Kuwait. The Pakistani diaspora in Gulf countries wants to get access to Kuwait’s markets, he said, and added that visa restrictions are a hurdle in getting access to the markets.
