Answered by Nat | Apr. 10, 2023 20:41

There is no visa fee for Pakistan passport holders. If you go there for the purpose of sightseeing, the requirements include your passport, application form, round-trip flight tickets and hotel bookings.

What do you mean by ticket price? The flight ticket? It varies a lot for different air routes and on different days. When and where will you fly from?
