The closure of the visa section will come as a massive setback for many Afghans, hundreds of whom apply daily for permits to travel to Pakistan where they seek medical treatment, goods and university educations.

A message shared on WhatsApp by an embassy spokesperson said the consular section would be closed as of Monday “until further intimation”. The spokesperson told AFP that the consular section typically processes about 1,500 visa applications a day.

Earlier, the Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) summoned the Afghan chargé d’affaires to express serious concerns over the safety and security of embassy personnel in the region.

In the light of Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Privileges and Immunities 1961, the chargé d’affaires was reminded about the responsibility of the Afghan government to ensure safety, security and freedom of movement to all members of the mission.
