Pakistanis residing in UAE now have the facility to register complaints, make suggestions, and give feedback by using the new Foreign Minister’s Portal introduced by the National Information Technology Board (NITB) on Monday.
According to Gulf News, Pakistan ‘Foreign Minister’s Portal’ has initially been launched in five Pakistani missions abroad, which includes Dubai, Jeddah, London, New York, and Barcelona to help overseas Pakistanis file complaints, ideas, and feedback.
Furthermore, the highlight of this latest initiative is that even international nationals in these nations can download and register the portal to communicate their concerns and suggestions in case they are encountering any problems in dealing with the foreign missions in these countries. The gateway will gradually be available to all Pakistani missions abroad.
