Some important tips.

LOCAL LAWS AND CUSTOMS

Pakistan is a Muslim country. You should respect local customs and sensitivities at all times, especially during the holy month of Ramadan or if you intend to visit religious areas.

You should dress modestly at all times. Men and women should cover their shoulders and legs when in public. Women should cover their heads when entering mosques or other holy places, and when travelling in more rural areas.

For identification purposes you should carry a photo id at all times. Keep a photocopy of the data page and Pakistani visa from your passport plus copies of other important travel documents. These should be kept separately from the originals.

Importing alcohol and pork products is illegal. Homosexuality is illegal. Co-habitation by an unmarried couple is illegal. Possession of even small quantities of illegal drugs can lead to imprisonment. Drug smuggling can attract the death penalty.

You should not take photographs at military establishments, airports or any infrastructure, including bridges and dams or from aircraft. You should seek prior permission from any official present if you are photographing these types of places, especially in border areas.

Pakistan is also a very welcoming place. The people love to shower hospitality on all guests in very traditional ways.
