The latest development in the visa policy of Pakistan was required by the United States.
Previously, the United States used to issue the same type of visas for the Pakistani citizens, but, it has now changed its policy of issuing 5-year, multiple entry tourist and visit visas to Pakistanis.
Presently, the US is only issuing 3-month visas to most Pakistanis and has also enforced new limitations on the official visas.
The new limitation restricts some officials of the Interior Ministry from getting the US visas.
