Around 1,000 Schengen visa stickers were stolen from Italian Embassy, in Islamabad.
The Italian Embassy wrote a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 16, to initiate a probe regarding the incident.
The letter stated “1,000 Schengen visa stickers had been stolen from the embassy’s locker room and shared the serial numbers of the stolen stickers.”
However, the Foreign Affairs Ministry has requested the Ministry of Interior and Federal Investigation Agency to keep a check on entry and exit points.
A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a person to travel to any members of the Schengen Area, per stays up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.
The Schengen visa is the most common visa for Europe. It enables its holder to enter, freely travel within, and leave the Schengen zone from any of the Schengen member countries. There are no border controls within the Schengen Zone.
