Pakistan is also giving such facility to 67 other countries but with a different fee structure.

The FIA says that on arrival visa is being issued to businessmen from Pakistan’s business friendly countries.

The businessmen will be required to produce letter of invitation from a business organization in Pakistan with recommendation letter from a Chamber of Commerce in Pakistan and recommendation letter from a Trade Association in Pakistan to obtain the visa.
