Entry/Exit Difficulties for U.S. Citizens
U.S. Citizens should ensure that their travel documents and visas are valid at all times. Americans throughout Pakistan have been arrested, deported, harassed, and detained for overstaying their Pakistani visas or for traveling to Pakistan without the appropriate visa classification.
U.S. Citizens who attempt to renew or extend their visas while in Pakistan have been left without legal status for an extended period of time and subjected to harassment or interrogation by local authorities. U.S. Citizens are encouraged to apply for renewal of travel documents at least 3 months prior to expiration because security threats might, on short notice, temporarily restrict the ability of the U.S. Missions, particularly in Peshawar, to provide routine consular services.
