Has anyone gotten a certified Copy of Pakistani Passport  (for IRS form W7) at Karachi Consulate recently ( or not so recently)?

 

What's the process?

 

I asked my wife to call them ( she hasn't yet ). However, it'd be nice to hear from someone who got it done in Karachi or any other Pakistani Consulate.

Thanks for the response. The website says US citizen services. Does a US citizen have to accompany the Pakistani spouse?

 

Also, did you bring a photocopy of just the biographical page or the whole passport?

Thanks for the help CH Saab. I will fill out the W-7 and send it to wife for her to sign. We set up an appointment for next week already. The link you shared was very helpful.

I'll have her send them to me via DHL. I understand there is a risk of documents getting lost. However, I don't know anyone traveling to the US within the next month or so. 

 

What about you? Do you have a friend or relative bringing carrying the documents for you? Or are you using a courier service as well?

Makes sense. I don't plan on traveling back before April or I would have done the same.
