Afghanistan offers multiple-entry visas to Pakistani businessmen
Afghanistan has decided to offer multiple-entry visas to Pakistani traders in a bid to improve bilateral ties between the two neighboring nations.
The decision followed after official request from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Pakistani businessmen have welcomed the decision of the Afghan government as a mean to deepen trade.
Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PAJCCI) Founder-Chairman Zubair Motiwala said that visas had always been a high priority of the PAJCCI.
Addressing the 4th Made in Pakistan Exhibition in Kabul, Motiwala said one of the most important demands of the joint chamber had been accepted by Afghanistan.
Afghanistan and Pakistan’s trade relationship is often affected by the political tensions. The Afghan government has time and again accused Pakistan of not abiding by the Afghanistan-Pakistan Trade and Transit Agreement (APTTA).
Pakistani authorities stop Afghan trucks at the borders and elicit illegal fees and taxes; as a result, the Afghan government has turned to alternative trade routes to access the international market.
