I am a Malaysian. To obtain a Pakistan Visa outside Malaysia, let's say in India, you need to have a "Letter of Invitation from your embassy".

I read this a lot of times in different forum, but what does it mean "letter of invitation from my embassy"? Do i need to get the letter from Ministry of Foreign Affair in Malaysia; or get the letter from Malaysian Embassy in India; or..

Can someone kindly explain this to me?.. Thanks!

I would write to your Malaysian embassy in Pakistan and ask them. Embassies are usually (well the Uk embassies anyway) very helpful.

Letter of invitation is that you need to ask a friend in Pakistan or place you are travelling to write an invitation letter to the embassy to confirm your stay with them and for what business you would be going there.

Letter of invitation means a person from pakistan who will send letter to the pakistani embassy where you are gonna aply for visa.. for this problem you have to contact some tour operator in Pakistan and ask them for the reservation of your tour..

My guess is that they are asking that, given no personal contacts in Pakistan, you ask your foreign service to act as your "guarantor", more or less saying that they will accept responsibility.

Contact your local embassy and see if they issue such a document.
