Pakistan issues visas to Sikh pilgrims on the occasion of Baisakhi celebrations

On the occasion of Baisakhi celebrations, the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi has issued 2843 visas to Sikh pilgrims from India to participate in the annual festival scheduled to be held in Pakistan from 13-22 April 2024. The pilgrims would, inter-alia, visit Gurdwara Panja Sahib, Gurdwara Nankana Sahib and Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib.

Every year, a large number of Sikh Yatrees from India visit Pakistan to observe various religious festivals/occasions under the framework of the Pakistan-India Protocol on Visits to Religious Shrines of 1974.

Expressing his views on the occasion, Charge d’ Affaires, Mr. Saad Ahmad Warraich, extended his heartfelt felicitations to all those celebrating this auspicious festival and wished the visiting pilgrims a fulfilling yatra.

The issuance of visas to religious pilgrims by the High Commission is in line with the Government of Pakistan’s commitment to fully implement the Bilateral Protocol on Visits to Religious Shrines between the two countries.
