ISLAMABAD: While Pakistanis are often found complaining about the treatment they are meted out at immigration counters in a foreign country, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar was asked on Saturday to look into the attitude of immigration staff towards the few foreigners arriving in Pakistan. House of Lords member Lord Nazir Ahmed requested the interior minister to look into the problems overseas Pakistanis face while waiting to receive their stamp of entry into the country. Issuing directives to FIA to set up a special cell to look into all problems faced by overseas Pakistanis when they visit or stay in Pakistan, Nisar directed immigration authorities to adopt a more traveller-friendly attitude towards all visitors.
