According to the details, the said digital platform will give Pakistanis living outside of Pakistan an easy way to get power of attorney services without having to go to consulates or embassies in person. At the Foreign Office, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar, Foreign Secretary Dr. Asad Majeed Khan, NADRA Chairman Dr. Tariq Malik, and Foreign Affairs Parliamentary Secretary Syed Hussain Tariq were there for the launch of the digital platform.
During the ceremony to launch the service, FM Bilawal said that this digital service is a big step towards helping Non-Resident Pakistanis (NRPs). He then said that automating the attestation and legalisation of power of attorney was something that NRPs had been asking for for a long time. This automated system will make it cheaper to visit Pakistani embassies and bring attestation services right to the homes of Pakistanis living abroad.
According to information shared by NADRA, the authority has designed, built, and put into place a web-based solution for digitally issuing PAO. Nine million Pakistanis living abroad will be able to use this service from the comfort of their own homes.
