Government mulls granting two-year visa extension to Chinese nationals

The government is considering the possibility of giving two years visa extension to Chinese nationals working on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects. The government may approve a general two-year extension, a senior government official. Another option that is being considered is to link the visa period with the completion date of the multibillion-dollar project, which could end the requirement of seeking an extension.

An Interior Ministry official said that the interior minister has directed to further reduce the visa processing time to four weeks and allowed to issue visas in case the prime intelligence agency gives security clearance.
