ISLAMABAD (TLTP): The Pakistan-Afghanistan Torkham border has introduced a new visa policy for drivers of commercial vehicles.

Traders and truck drivers welcomed the move and expressed their satisfaction with the new policy. They said that it will benefit both the countries and the businessmen.

Customs Inspector Alam Zeb said that the visa implementation stamp is in use worldwide as per the law and that it will benefit both the people and the businessmen. Incharge FIA Inamul Haque said that the new visa policy will make it easier to keep a record of those who cross the border.
