It has again come to the notice of the Pakistan High Commission London that some self-styled “NADRA Advice Bureaus” are still operating in various parts of the UK. They are charging money from the applicants for helping them submit their Online NADRA Applications.
The High Commission clarifies that these “NADRA Advice Bureaus” are unauthorized entities, not sanctioned by the High Commission or its Consulates.
It may be noted that the Online Application Service for NICOP was started to facilitate the applicants to submit their NICOP applications from any place of convenience.
Since such Bureaus have no official authorization to operate, the High Commission and its Consulates will not be responsible for loss of money or theft of information of the applicants. Some of the applicants are already facing
difficulties in NICOP processing due to fudging in their applications by the above mentioned Bureaus.
The purported “NADRA Advice Bureaus” are also warned that any use of the logo or name of the Government of Pakistan would be illegal and liable to prosecution.
The Pakistani community members, in their own interest, are advised to beware of the situation.
