All consular services at the Pakistani Consulate General in Dubai will remain suspended until further notice, as per a senior diplomat. However, Consul General says special flights will continue to be used to repatriate stranded people.
The Pakistani consulate closed its doors to the consular service on April 6, following the United Arab Emirates government’s guidelines on restricted movement. “We will advise expatriates not to visit the consulate because consular services are not available,” he said in a conversation with journalists on Monday. He said the access roads to the consulate areas are still blocked due to restricted mobility and people are not allowed to visit the consulate.
“We also do not offer passport or ID renewal services until further notice,” he added.
