ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Foreign Office goes digital, for the first time in history of the country.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs has adopted the digital QR code system for attestation of documents.

"To improve Consular Services, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is shifting from manual attestation system to digital attestation. It will initially launch digital QR Code system at the Headquarters with effect from March 5, 2019," says a FO press release.

The QR Code System will also be introduced subsequently at Camp Offices.

QR Code system is a user-friendly digital attestation process, which would lead to expeditious attestation.

This will help to verify the attestation of their documents via QR Code scanner.

Moreover, the malpractice of forged attestation would be curbed. Digital attestation would also help create paperless environment as the data will be digitally backed up.
