sajid08 posted Applying for NICOP at Birmingham Consulate on the Pakistan forum on October 22, 2014:
Hi All, I need to apply for NICOP of my new born baby and then subsequently for her Pakistani Passport as we need to travel to Pakistan at the end of December, I called up High commission in London and they say next available appointment is in January, which doesn't work for me, next option for me is to go to Birmingham Consulate as they do walk in appointments, but the guy at the high commission said that they may not accept your application as you don't live in that area...but you can give it a try....I called up the Consulate number multiple times but no one is picking up....I don't want to travel 150 miles and find out that they don't take applications for people living in the London area...so has someone got any info on that? would Birmingham consulate accept my NICOP application? Please let me know as it's urgent. Thanks in advance. Syed

copperpotts posted British girl moving to Pakistan? on the Pakistan forum on October 21, 2014:
I've been with my Pakistani partner for 4 years in the UK, since he came over to study. However his visa expires in January so he will need to return to Pakistan if he cant find work by then. However his father doesn't want me to come back with his son. If we were to go against his wishes and move to Pakistan together, would i find life very difficult without the support of family. Also my partners family are from Lahore, would that be the safest city to move to, thanks.

Oldcameraman replied to the thread More robberies in Coronado on the Pakistan forum:

Well sadly I can report on the latest robbery as it occurred at my home during the night inside the gates of Coronado.Very upsetting but I am able to report neither of us were hurt.The scum thieves gained entry to our property by cutting a hole through our chain link fence and obviously cased the house as we found two windows open but we have very secure steel bars on all windows and doors.These scum bags found that we had left a sliding door open for air flow even though it is well secured with steel bar gates so what they did was simply find something to reach inside and drag items to the steel grated door such as phones, my wifes purse with all her cards and I.D. and moneycamera gear etc. .We were asleep in our bedroom with the door shut as we run the air at night .Therefore luckily they could not gain access into the house. and get to us. I keep a large hunting knife by the door which I found in our backyard which is the way these thieves left.They even tried on my running shoes ,removed the laces but obviously they were to small for them,These cases are on the rise in a huge way and the police do absolutely nothing.It is not even worth reporting it to them as you only waste your time. They simply do not care. So we have fences,lights, and are or so we thought very aware of who is around but obviously not aware enough.They are fearless as they also know if they get caught there will be no charges laid. My next option is to install an electrified fence including the chain link and if they get through that ....I now have another surprise for them. We moved here believing we would never be victims of crime and we are not whining ..we are going to fight back and not let these scum force us to review our lifestyle.We like Panama,the weather the beaches and its people but this crime wave is something this government needs to focus in on as it will soon begin to seriously effect peoples thoughts who are considering moving here. Know all who work on your property well,check out where they are from,know your neighbours,have someone to call in case of emergency and forget the police they are a dead loss. Take the time to really review your property possibly with a professional security company.Buy a nasty dog who enjoys the odd taste of human flesh when not invited. Be safe be prepared as it can happen to any of you at any time.

Moving to Pakistan. Really. Are you out of ideas on where to move. Well, it's your call. When you apply for a visa by post, include the visa fees and and a $ 100 crisp bill for "baksheesh" or bribe. Your visa will be processed right away. Be careful, it's the eastern version of the wild west.

Feroza replied most recently with:
Am definitely not coming to Pakistan for a man, purely work, have no interest in marrying anyone there, am happily married to a South African. As stated before my concern is, Way of life, culture and safety. As a SA our dress code is very westernized as I'm sure u know, and gender balance is not something we think about as its part of our diversity. Thanks for your response
