Sharif's British visa to expire this month

india Updated: Jul 05, 2006 18:21 IST

The British visa of exiled former Pakistan Premier Nawaz Sharif would expire this month and he is expected to travel to Saudi Arabia soon to seek its renewal.

Sharif, who was deposed by then army ruler Pervez Musharraf and exiled to Jeddah in 2000, moved to London after completion of his five-year's exile.

He has subsequently launched a campaign to oust Musharraf along with another former Premier Benazir Bhutto.

Rules stipulate that Sharif has to move out of London to apply for renewal of visa, media reports here said.

Official of the British High Commission in Islamabad said they have so far not received any application from Sharif for renewal of his visa, Daily Times reported.

Sharif is expected to arrive in Dubai soon, and then probably travel to Saudi Arabia to apply for the British visa, it said.
