Sikh pilgrims visiting Kartarpur don’t need passport: Imran Khan

WEB DESK

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday announced that Sikh pilgrims from India would not need a passport to travel to Kartarpur and no fee would be charged from them on the opening day of the corridor on November 9.

“For Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I have waived off two requirements: i) they won’t need a passport-just a valid ID; ii)they no longer have to register 10 days in advance. Also, no fee to be charged on day of inauguration and on Guruji’s 550th birthday,” Khan tweeted.

Reacting to the gesture, Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh said that the waiver should be extended to not just “Sikhs but all citizens of secular India.”

Further, in line with India’s long-standing demand, Singh said that the fee should be waived off on “all days instead of just two.”

The Kartarpur Corridor will connect the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Punjab with Darbar Sahib at Kartarpur, just 4 kilometres from the International Border, located at Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province.
