    Pakistanis without visa barred from entering Afghanistan

    ISLAMABAD/KABUL: Afghan authorities on Sunday said that no Pakistani citizen would be permitted to enter the country without having valid travel documents.

    The new order has come into effect from January 1, 2017, reported the Gulf News.

    The report further added that hundreds of Pakistanis who had gone to Afghanistan have returned via the Torkham border after the announcement on Sunday.

    However, officials said the residents of Landikotal have been exempted from this order. They would continue to travel to Afghanistan with passport and visa as their permit would remain valid for crossing the Pak-Afghan border.

    The so-called easement rights cater to the needs of people living in the border areas in both Afghanistan and Pakistan as they are related to each other and have to attend social events.

    However, they, on the request of the Afghan and Pakistani businessmen, extended the deadline twice.

    Banners were displayed at various points in Torkham reminding Pakistani nationals that from Jan.1, 2017 they would not be permitted to cross the Torkham border and enter Afghanistan without legal travel documents. Extra contingents of the security personnel have been deployed at the Torkham border crossing to implement the new policy.

    Meanwhile, Afghanistan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah invited new Pakistani Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to visit Kabul.

    The Inter-Services Public Relations chief Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that General Bajwa telephoned Afghan President, chief executive and his Afghan counterpart on Saturday and felicitated them on the eve of New Year.

    Landi Kotal is the hub of smuggling and all Afghan smugglers benefit from this point..

    Being related is no excuse to spending money on travel unless it has a economic reason to it..in simple words..smugglers!

    Pakistan should also make sure all Afhans return home, including those who have managed to get CNIC through manipulation or gratification. For once cross boarder movement should stop. It is in the interest of Pakistan. Pakistan should stop thinking about interest of Afghanistan, as she has paid through nose for such considerations. All transit goods should be stopped and all consumable products from Pakistan should be stopped. When Afghanistan realises that it is a land locked country and approaches Pakistan for passage, only then on our terms facilities should be provided.

    So in short they were forced to recognise Durand line :enjoy:. Now afghan government has to officially recognise it as international border not that anyone cares.

    Secondly no one in the right mind would travel to the arse end of our planet.

    Good move. Security forces on both sides of the border need to get tougher and stricter on controlling who comes in and out of their country. This will stop illegal activities and less complaints of smugglers, too.

    To suggest Pakistan should stop transport of goods is a ridiculous suggestion. Pakistani businessmen make money out of exporting to their neighbours, little or a lot of profit is still profit to our economy and I don't understand why or businessmen should suffer because of our politicians' egos.

    Either way, politically, financially and hopefully otherwise I see ties going in the right way and we should hope for what's the best for our long term purpose. NOT how to vent out our anger on people who've got nothing to do with the mess created by our (ir)respective governments.

    Finally they get it. This is your border, this is where you check the documents of foreigners entering your country. Not some imaginary line 100s of km inside other countries. Both sides need to reinforce control over the actual border to monitor the flow of movement towards both sides.

    Its a good step by Afghanistan, we should be happy as its initiated by afghanistan. Because if Pakistan would have done it , afghanistan would have created alot of noise .

    Now when Pakistan will enforce this law , it will be easy for afganis to undersatnd
