Pakistan's consulate in Afghanistan city Jalalabad will resume its visa operations from Monday.

Foreign Office Spokesperson, Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted, "Pakistan’s Consulate General in Jalalabad, which was closed on 30th August 2018 will resume its visa operations, after assurances by the Afghan government that all necessary and required security will be provided to the Consulate Generals."

"All visa applicants in Jalalabad and surrounding areas within the jurisdiction of the Consulate General could now apply for the visa with the Consulate General with effect from Monday 8th October 2018," he added.

Pakistan closed its Jalalabad consulate due to the 'unnecessary intervention' of the Nangarhar governor Hayatullah Hayat. 

Pakistan embassy in Kabul issued a statement on this matter and referred to as a "complete violation of the Vienna Convention of the Consular Relations 1963".

"The Embassy of Pakistan Kabul deeply regrets undue intervention of Governor Hayatullah Hayat in the functioning of the Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in Jalalabad, [which is a ] complete violation of the Vienna Convention of the Consular Relations 1963," the statement read.

The embassy had requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan to look into this matter and ensure restoration of the security of the Consulate General.
