Smart National Identity Card: Overseas Pakistanis (SNICOP) can now be obtained from the offices of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) by members of the Pakistani diaspora, especially those residing in Saudi Arabia, UAE, and other Gulf countries.

In case of dual citizenship, any Pakistani citizen can apply for NADRA Smart NICOP and travel to Pakistan without a visa. If the child was born abroad, a passport number is a prerequisite before applying for this document.

NADRA offers two fee structures for Smart Necoup based on region. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where more than 70 percent of Pakistanis live, fall in Zone B.
