Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday announced that Sikh pilgrims coming to Kartarpur will not require a passport and will no longer have to register 10 days in advance.

The premier, while making the announcement on Twitter, said, “For Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I have waived off 2 requirements: i) they wont need a passport - just a valid ID; ii) they no longer have to register 10 days in advance.”

PM Imran also announced that no fee will be charged on the day the Kartarpur corridor will be inaugurated by the premier on Guruji’s 550th birthday on November 9.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had announced that PM Imran will inaugurate the corridor on November 9.

Pakistan has also invited former prime minister of India Manmohan Singh to attend the opening ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor on the occasion of the 550th Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

Pakistan and India had signed the Kartarpur Corridor agreement last week at zero line, Pakistan-India Narowal border.
