How can I get an LOI without booking a tour or With Booking or Tour?
We offer the option of obtaining a Letter of Invitation (LOI) without booking a complete tour with us. To receive the LOI, you must book hotel accommodation through us or use our car or motorbike rental services. These services are required in order to issue the LOI and obtain your visa. We are a fast, reliable, and licensed tour company, authorized by the Department of Tourism in the Government of Pakistan. Contact us anytime on our 24/7 Whatsapp helpline for quick communication. If you book a complete tour with us, you will receive an LOI free of charge.
Note: Our LOI policy differs from other companies. Adventure Planners can issue an LOI, excluding for Indians and Israelis, without booking a complete tour. This applies to American tourists as well, if they stay in any of our hostels or hotels in Islamabad, Gilgit, or Skardu, where dormitory or private rooms are available, or if they take any of our other tourist services such as car or bike rentals or partial tours. Afghan nationals or those born in Afghanistan can also receive assistance with the visa process by directly contacting us on our Whatsapp helpline at +92 3477343720.
AP requires solo backpackers to provide a travel itinerary when they issue an LOI. This is to have a record of your destination and activities in case there are any inquiries from the authorities. By having this information, the company can easily answer any questions and ensure your safety while you travel.
