The National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP) is a registration document issued to a Pakistani citizen who resides or has a reference outside of Pakistan.
In the case of dual nationality, any Pakistani citizen can apply for NICOP and travel to Pakistan without a visa. Please note that if you are applying for NICOP Card Renewal for a newborn baby who was born outside of the United States, you must have a passport number.
Who is eligible for NICOP?
All Pakistanis staying in the United States for more than six months are now required to have NICOP. All members of the family, including children under the age of 18, must have this card.
