Asked if the Chinese embassy in Pakistan has started issuing visas to Pakistani students, he said, “Students concerned should strictly follow China’s epidemic prevention protocol.” More than 28,000 Pakistani students have been stranded in their country for nearly two years due to Beijing’s COVID-19 visa ban.

Zhao did not deny reports of visas for Pakistani students, but did not comment on allowing 23,000 Indian students. Most of them were studying medicine in China. Last month, China pledged to work for the speedy return of more than 23,000 Indian students from India and assured New Delhi that they would not be discriminated against in any way as restoring their studies was not a political issue.
