National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis

     The Soft Opening ceremony of National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP) was held in Pakistan High Commission, Pretoria on Friday, 21 December 2012. The ceremony took place in the Chancery in a simple but impressive manner, which was largely attended by the Pakistani community members, businessmen, media people and officers and officials of the High Commission. Mr. Zaigham Uddin Azam, High Commissioner of Pakistan was the Chief guest of this prestigious ceremony.

     The provision of NICOP facility has addressed an old and outstanding grievance of the Pakistani community members based in South Africa and five accredited countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia and Swaziland) as they were facing immense hardships in getting their NICOP processed from Pakistan. The NICOP facility will also cover the Pakistani diaspora in the African continent.

     The office bearers of Pakistan Community Associations of South Africa, present on the occasion greatly applauded the efforts Government of Pakistan and the High Commissioner for providing this facility in the High Commission and also thanked the Chairman and the Management of NADRA in approving the project for South Africa.

    For the time being, the community members will have the facility of NICOP only, but after sometime additional services such as POC, Birth Certificates, Marriage and Divorce certificates will also be issued them from the High Commission, through NADRA.

    The High Commissioner in his concluding speech also informed about the deployment of MRP in the Chancery which he announced would be made operational shortly. This was greatly lauded by the Pakistani diaspora.
