Pakistan is home to the most beautiful scenic landscapes in the world. Unfortunately, due to security concerns, it has never been a popular destination for tourists across the world.
However, it looks like things are about to change on the tourism front for Pakistan as the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has decided to review visa policies to attract more people from across the world to visit.
The PTDC has also reported that tourism in the country has tripled after 2013 due to the decrease in terrorist attacks in Pakistan.
The concerned departments have been asked to list down the new plans for changes to be made in the current visa policies in order to facilitate more tourists during 2018.
Managing Director of the PTDC Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor has mentioned,
“We will focus on overseas Pakistanis and foreign tourists during the year 2018.”
Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor also requested Civil Aviation Authority to provide a place for Tourism Information Desks at all the international airports in the country to make it easier for foreigners.
PTDC has also decided to appoint focal persons in major cities of Pakistan and other coordinators for tourism in foreign countries to work as a link between various tourism departments and tourists.
The increased activity on the tourism front is due to the recent report by a renown British travel company which has ranked Pakistan as the top adventure tourist destination in the world.
