ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan High Commission in the United Kingdom will be running a “Visit Pakistan” video message on London’s New Year’s Day Parade (LNYDP) 2020.
The specially-produced video with the national anthem tune played in the background contains Prime Minister Imran Khan’s brief message, some most beautiful photos and scenes of country’s breathtaking tourist destinations and glimpses of the Royal Couple’s recent visit to Pakistan.

Simplifying the tourist visa process by the current government has also generated a lot of interest from foreign tourists in Pakistan.
