SHARJAH: Pakistani community members residing in Ras Al Khaimah have been given an opportunity to avail themselves of a number of consular services at their doorstep, as they no longer have to visit Dubai to complete their applications.
The Pakistani Consulate in Dubai, after announcing a number of times that they were able to launch the mobile service for the community members residing in Ras Al Khaimah. The first mobile service will start on Friday (Dec 26) from 10am to 2pm at the Pakistan Higher Secondary School Ras Al Khaimah, where residents will have access to all facilities, like renewing or obtaining a computerised national identity card, attestation of various documents, and other services.
Earlier, residents had to visit the Consulate in Dubai to spend whole day waiting in long queues for hours.
Officials at the Consulate in Dubai pointed out that the mobile service will provide all the facilities except for the renewal of passports.
“Officials have used various modes of communication with the community in Ras Al Khaimah to inform them about setting up mobile services. We are sure that a large number of community members will benefit from this service,” he said.
Javed Khattak, President Pakistan Social Centre in Ras Al Khaimah, told The Gulf Today that they were waiting for this service for the last two years, as earlier the officials from the consulate were setting up camp every fortnight to serve the community.
“This comes as a relief to the community, as the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah has a huge number of community members and they had to spend a whole day to avail themselves of a single service and end up spending large sums of money,” he said.
On the occasion of launching the smart card by the Pakistan Consulate in Dubai, Javed Jalil Khattak, Consul General, announced the start of mobile services to benefit the community residing in the Northern Emirates.
On a rotation basis, such camps will be set up regularly, once a week, at one of the stations in the northern Emirates including Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Sharjah.

The Embassy of Pakistan, Abu Dhabi and Consulate General of Pakistan, Dubai will remain closed on Thursday, Dec 25 in connection with 138th birth Anniversary of the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Father of the Nation, and Christmas.
