Hundreds of Pakistanis have had their visas revoked by the Greek embassy


Numerous Pakistanis have had their visas revoked by Greece, and those who travel to or work there would now face more thorough screening.

According to Pakistani media, which Directus cited: “The Greek embassy in Islamabad has thus far revoked the visas of hundreds of underprivileged Pakistanis. These Pakistanis spend 2 to 5 million rupees to obtain visas for Greece. A visa that is issued by Greece is revoked by the Greek Embassy. The innocent poor who pay money to first obtain a work permit are being treated very unfairly. And visas are revoked by the Greek embassy in Islamabad.

According to Urdu Media Greece, hundreds of Pakistani families have made calls and left messages after having their visa applications denied, wasting their money as well.

“We urge the governments of Pakistan and Greece to treat this matter seriously. Why do they misuse Pakistanis’ hard-earned money? Greece’s Urdu Media enquired.

There are hundreds more Pakistanis who enter the country and Europe illegally, but here is the tale of two who tried to enter Greece officially.

Husnain Shah, a Pakistani smuggler who has been in the business for more than ten years, disputes that he had a significant hand in the shipwreck off the Greek coast that claimed almost 300 Pakistani lives.

People visit our homes and ask us to put them in touch with someone who can take their brothers and sons abroad since there is so much unemployment here, he told the BBC.

Husnain estimates that during his years of operation, he has abducted thousands of people.

Because there was no other business, I started this. I don’t play a major part; the big and wealthy people in Libya are the ones who receive the majority of the funds—not even a tenth of it.

Many people in this country are considering moving abroad because even a modest wage will likely be higher than what they can make if they stay, given the fragile state of the economy, the nearly 40% inflation rate, and the falling value of the Pakistani rupee.

At the conclusion of the previous year, a poll indicated that 62% of boys and young men between the ages of 15 and 24 desired to leave. Some people may attempt to go lawfully, while others will seek out alternate unlawful methods.
