Pakistani expatriates in Qatar can now renew their identity cards and passports by using online facility available on official website of Nadra Pakistan.

Recently government of Pakistan started online facility for preparation of Machine Readable Passports (MRPs) and Computerized National Identity Cards (NICOPs) for Pakistani expatriates. Now Pakistani expatriates can renew their NICOPs and MRPs by logging in to weblinks and respectively.

“It has come to the notice of Pakistan mission in State of Qatar that some individuals are involved in misusing this online facility through illegal establishment of Private Facilitation Centers for online preparation of MRPs and NICOPs and in this connection those Pakistani expatriates who are approaching these private facilitation centres for online preparation of NICOPs and MRPs are being charged over and above against fixed online fees for making NICOPs and MRPs,” said the embassy in a statement.

The embassy has said that such private facilitation centres do not enjoy any kind of patronage of Embassy of Pakistan and such facilitation centres are involved in illegal use of online facility for preparation of NICOPs and MRPs.

All expatriates living in Qatar have been asked by the embassy that they should come to the Embassy of Pakistan, Qatar for preparation of their NICOPs and MRPs if they are unable to utilise online facility on their own.

Since September 2017, Embassy of Pakistan in Qatar is processing the renewal cases of NICOPs and MRPs on walk in basis during five days a week ifrom Sunday to Thursday and in this regard expatriates are not required to get appointment date for renewal of their passports and NICOPs.

The same facility is available for processing of cases of new born babies. However, firstly NICOPs are processed for new born babies and afterwards passport cases are processed for them.
