Applying for a new passport or getting the current one renewed can generally be a time-consuming and tiring process at the regional passport offices in Pakistan due to long queues. As a solution to this problem, the Directorate General of Immigration and Passports has established executive passport offices in the major cities of Pakistan.

This initiative has been completed in collaboration with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to facilitate the applicants with a one-window operation for all needs.

In these executive passport offices, it takes 15-20 minutes to complete different processes. All applications are treated on a priority basis and the applicants are offered premium services.

For instance, some of the executive offices offer refreshments to visitors. Moreover, ATMs, bank counters, and printers are available in the facilities to cater to the applicants’ needs. However, it is important to note that minimum service charges may sometimes be required.

Graana.com has compiled a comprehensive guide on all the executive passport offices in Pakistan to ease your application process.

Step-by-Step Guide to Getting a Passport


Step Guide to Getting a Passport Flowchart


Step 1 – Step 1: The applicant must show up at the customer service desk in this step. You will be led to the token counter if you have all the necessary documentation with you.

Step 2 – The next stage entails showing up at the token counter and taking a picture. In addition to copies of the original CNIC, Smart Card, NICOP, or Children Registration Certificate (CRC), if the applicant is under the age of 18, the applicant must also present a bank challan form.

Additionally, photos of the applicant will be taken by the camera operator. The applicant will then receive a token.

Step 3 – The final phase involves collecting biometric information. When the applicant arrives at the biometric counter for capture, they will proceed to the biometric counter after receiving another token. The Data Entry Operator (DEO) will take the applicant’s fingerprints here.

Step 4 – The data is entered by office personnel at this stage. When the applicant’s token number appears on the counter, they will proceed to the data entry counters. The applicant will be able to direct the data entry operator about the proper entry of his credentials in the system.

After the data entry is completed, the data form will be printed by the operator and will be presented to the applicant for verification. The applicant will verify all its contents by signing the form. The applicant will be asked to collect duplicate tokens from the data entry counter.

Step 5 – Verification according to Office Record (ECL/BL) is required in this step. The verification will be done using official records. To confirm that the applicant has a clear record, Exit Control List (ECL) and Black List (BL) checks will also be made.

In case of the slightest doubt about the National Status of the applicant, the case may be referred to the Special Branch/IB for confirmation.

Step 6 – In the final step, the Assistant Director interviews the candidates and makes the final decision about the issuance of the passport. The documents will be cross-checked by the Assistant Director. The last step involves an interview & decision by the Assistant Director. Finally, the applicant will appear before the Assistant Director when his token appears on the AD counter along with all the original documents.

For candidates with an age below 18 years, the Assistant Director will defer the case and will provide them with a form for attestation from the Class 1 Govt. officer. The attester will have to write his/her CNIC/Contact No. along with the official stamp on the form.

Once the data form is duly verified by the Class 1 Officer, the AD will give a go-ahead to the applicant’s passport application. To get a new passport, you can visit the nearest executive passport office with your documents. You can also apply at all the executive offices for the renewal of your expired passport.
