NADRA Introduces User-Friendly Digital Power of Attorney for Overseas Pakistanis

ISLAMABAD: “NADRA’s new Digital Power of Attorney service streamlines the process for overseas Pakistanis. Empower someone in Pakistan easily with a user-friendly online experience.”

NADRA Introduces User-Friendly Digital Power of Attorney for Overseas Pakistanis

To help Pakistanis living abroad who find it hard to go to the nearest Pakistani office, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has made it easier. They created a simple online service called Digital Power of Attorney (PoA) to make things smoother.

This service is for overseas Pakistanis who have a valid National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP), Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC), or Pakistan Origin Card (POC). With just six easy steps online, they can give someone in Pakistan the power to act on their behalf.

NADRA launches digital power of attorney service for overseas Pakistanis

The new online Power of Attorney service is here for members of the Pakistani diaspora. If you have a valid National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP), Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC), or Pakistan Origin Card (POC), you can easily give someone in Pakistan the power to act on your behalf. Just follow a simple six-step online process.

Before applying online, they need to meet certain requirements, like being an overseas Pakistani. Also, they must have valid identity documents (CNIC/NICOP/POC) for the person giving power, the witnesses, and the person getting power. They need a working email address, phone number, and an address outside Pakistan.

Here are the simple steps to finish everything:

  1. Be someone living outside Pakistan.
  2. Make sure you have the right ID papers for yourself, the person helping you (attorney), and anyone watching (witnesses) – like CNIC/NICOP/POC.
  3. Get an email address, phone number, and address that works outside Pakistan.

They have to provide biometric data, which means the fingerprints of the person giving power and two witnesses. They also have to pay the fee online using a credit or debit card. Along with that, they need to submit a scanned copy of the original Power of Attorney with signatures, thumb impressions, and a photo of the person giving power.

It’s important to give accurate details about the person getting power and the witnesses. If the person giving power doesn’t choose the right Pakistani office (Embassy/High Commission/Consulate), the application might get sent to the wrong place and get rejected.

For the Power of Attorney to be official, foreigners should visit the Pakistani office in their country after getting approval from their country’s State Department or Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
