Overseas Pakistanis in UK, USA, Canada, UAE, Australia, Norway, Spain, Saudi Arabia and various other countries are asking questions as how to get their CNIC and passports verified from NADRA as the interior minister has announced this step in order to eliminate the fake entries in the national database. In Pakistan it’s easy as the leader of the house receives SMS on their phones and they confirm the details to NADRA, and if they find any additional or lesser entry they report it to the nearest NADRA office.
Now the question is how overseas Pakistan can avail this as many are immigrants or workers abroad and need their identity documents in order. Will NICOP also be verified is also the question asked by the overseas Pakistanis. NICOP (National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis) is a registration document to be issued to a valid/legitimate citizen of Pakistan. So whats the procedure of checking online NADRA CNIC Verification and ID Card Status along with NICOP and passport verification. NADRA should display this information clearly on their website as soon as possible to avoid any confusion. Contact numbers, emails and other info should be rendered to the masses.
