|Abstract/Citation:||These Rules specify the procedure to follow and the forms to use in order to comply with the registration requirements. With the exception of tourists (i.e. foreigners not remaining more than 30 days in Pakistan or in any event not more than three months), foreigners shall, upon arrival in Pakistan, submit a Registration Report in exchange for which a temporary Certificate of Registration will be issued. Upon arrival at the final destination, and within thirty days, the temporary certificate shall be exchanged for a regular certificate, which is valid for as long as the foreigner remains in Pakistan. The certificate is always to be presented upon demand. Temporary absences from the place of registration exceeding seven days must be reported. Upon departure from Pakistan the Registration Certificate must be returned to the authorities in exchange for which a travel permit will be issued.
The Rules remains in force for Bangladesh in accordance with the Bangladesh (Adaptation of Existing Laws) Order, 1972.
