German woman given visa to meet husband

Couple departed for Gujranwala together

RAWALPINDI: A German national, who had arrived to meet her husband —deported from Germany — was allowed to enter the country.

Vogt Jennifer arrived at the airport on Monday morning. She, however, did not have a visa. As a result, the Immigration Cell of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) started to deport her. She pleaded that she was married to Zain Ali, who lives in Gujranwala and had been deported from Germany.

Realising the peril she was in, FIA's Imigration Cell issued her a visa-on-arrival.

The couple departed for Gujranwala together.

When asked, IIA Immigration Cell Additional Director Sajid Khokar told The Express Tribune that Ali had been deported from Germany last week. He added that they issued the visa to Jennifer on the guarantee from her husband to complete all the necessary legal formalities.
