Faisal Karim Kundi, Minister of State for Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety, has refuted lies regarding the hike in Iraq immigration fees, calling it “unrealistic.”
In a statement issued on Thursday, the Central Information Secretary of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) claimed that some travel agents and opposition elements were misinforming people about Iraqi visa fees, despite the fact that Foreign Minister and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari successfully fought the case of Pakistani people and demanded a reduction in visa fees during his visit to Iraq.
I had a lengthy conversation with the Iraqi ambassador on Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s instructions and explained the challenges faced by Pakistani pilgrims, he added.
The minister stated that Iraqi authorities had rejected information regarding raising the Iraq visa cost and that specifics would be posted on the internet soon.
The minister stated that during the PPP delegation’s most recent visit to Iraq, they discussed with Iraqi officials the provision of amenities to Pakistani pilgrims, including the launch of a ferry service and the decrease of visa fees.
He stated that the Pakistani embassy’s foundation had been built in Iraq for the first time in history.
According to the minister, the opening of a consulate in Najaf was considered, along with topics ranging from commerce to illegal immigrants.
