Today, after months of saving for a trip to India, I learnt that because I was born in Pakistan, I can't use my Canadian passport and have to apply for a Pakistani one. I also learnt there is a ban on Indian tourist visas for Pakistani passport holders. There goes my trip. FML

I'm not sure how all that works, but at least you didn't spend the money BEFORE finding all that out. Look on the bright side, you already have money saved up for a trip to another place you've always wanted to go to!

She didn’t say she had citizenship. She could have been a refuge at which point she still technically has Pakistan citizenship until citizenship process is complete.

Someone commented below that "they don't care that you are a citizen of another country, they won't let you in if you were born in Pakistan." Such a bummer for OP!

OP Please get an ID card made. It's called Nadra card. If you've got Pakistani citizenship then this will be easy. Get an appointment at the pakistan embassy in Canada. They will be able to advise. DM me if you want.

Lot of hatred between the two countries, so I'm not surprised such restrictions exist. There might be more than one way around it, though, if you can find the info you need online.

I looked it up, and it's true. India hates Pakistan so much that they don't care that you are a citizen of another country, they won't let you in if you were born in Pakistan.

They've not asked for it but they still have it... students from Pakistan mostly face great difficulty as they won't stay for a week or two for their degree so there we have it. I'm Indian but this is pointless as they won't somehow blow up places everywhere. They are the citizens who didn't harm us in anyway but our government and some unworthy chaps still hate em for no reason.
