Islamabad: The Afghanistan government has agreed to issue multiple-entry visas valid for six months to Pakistani businessmen, accepting a long-standing demand of the community.

Pakistani businessmen were earlier issued single-entry visas.

During his visit to Kabul in July, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf raised the issue with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who agreed to issue the multiple-entry visas.

The Afghan Embassy in Islamabad recently communicated the government's decision to issue multiple-entry visas to Pakistani authorities.

Pakistani officials said the move would strengthen bilateral relations in the trade and economic sectors.
