Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Pakistan in Stockholm, Sweden

Pakistan displays some of Asia’s most magnificent landscapes as it stretches from the Arabian Sea, its southern border, to some of the world’s most spectacular mountain ranges in the north. Pakistan is also home to sites that date back to world’s earliest settlements rivaling those of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Located in South Asia, Pakistan shares an eastern border with India and a north-eastern border with China. Iran makes up the country’s south-west border, and Afghanistan runs along its western and northern edge. The Arabian Sea is Pakistan’s southern boundary with 1,064 km of coastline.

This website provides information about Pakistan through relevant links to websites in Pakistan.  It contains information about Sweden.  Information is available about our consular and commercial services. We hope you find the Embassy website informative and interesting.

 

BIOMETRIC VERIFICATION OF CELL PHONE SIMs

 

1.             It is apprised that following alternate viable/workable solution for re-verification of SIMs of overseas Pakistanis has been worked out by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) along with Cellullar Mobile Operators and NADRA;

a)       An SMS shall be sent to all overseas Pakistanis (on international roaming) asking them to get their SIMs re-verified through BVS upon their visit to Pakistan or as per scenarios laid down in subsequent paras.

 

b)       For those SIMs which are present in Pakistan and their owners residing/visiting abroad, subscribers shall be advised to carry out Change of Ownership to the names of family members as per the procedure in vogue. One additional proof of relationship with the owners shall be seen and recorded by CMOs for reference.

 

c)       In case the SIM is neither in Pakistan nor on international roaming, it shall be blocked as per deadline, if not verified by due date. The same be unblocked, one subscriber carries out verification through BVS. However, CMOs shall make arrangements to ensure that the SIM is not issued to any other subscriber for a period of one year from the date of blocking.

 

d)       For SIMs that are operating overseas on international roaming except Afghanistan following process shall be adopted:

 

                                 i.            CMOs shall carry-out preliminary verification of the subscriber through USSD code or any other technique (like SMS) to assess genuineness of the subscriber. The verification shall include taking information such as CNIC, mother's name, place of birth etc. and verifying the same by taking data from NADRA.

                                ii.            If verification is successful, CNIC  # and MSIDSNs registered against it shall be tagged as "Temporarily Verified" for BVS Verification till return of CNIC holder to Pakistan.

                              iii.            A deadline of 31 March 2016 has been fixed for blocking of temporary verified SIMs, if not verified through BVS by that time.

                              iv.        CMOs shall make sure that this facility is only applicable for subscribers operating on international roaming.

 

e)    SIM operating in Afghanistan shall be verified as per procedure given in               Para 1(b) or 1(c), above.

2.             The above mentioned process is at final stage of implementation and subscribers shall be notified accordingly upon launching of same.
