Kartarpur Sahib, also known as Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur, isn’t just open for Indians via the Kartarpur Corridor; it’s also possible for Pakistanis and Foreigners in Pakistan to visit.
This blog will tell you exactly how to access the Gurudwara from Pakistan.
If you want to visit Kartarpur Sahib from India via the Kartarpur Corridor, I’ve written a complete guide for that too.
How to get to Kartarpur Sahib from Paksitan side
From Lahore, the Kartarpur Sahib parking lot is 130km and takes 2.5 hours. The roads are mostly good.
Use the parking lot’s Google Maps location to get there.
Be very careful not to take a wrong turn towards the border fence when driving there.
Narowal is the last big town before Kartarpur where you can buy things.
What documents are required to visit Kartarpur Sahib from Pakistan?
Foreigners need to bring their passport and visa.
Pakistanis just need to bring their ID card.
What is the entry fee to Kartarpur Sahib?
The entry fee to Kartarpur Sahib from the Pakistan side is Rs. 200 PKR for locals and foreigners.
Entry starts at 9am and ends at 3pm.
What happens when you arrive at Kartarpur Sahib?
Before you even arrive at the car park, you’ll go through four different Army check posts.
At the last checkpoint, your car will be searched, and you’ll need to get out and visit a booth to have your vehicle and IDs logged.
After all that, you can park your car. Then there are two more rounds of security.
At the final round, you’ll be given an entry pass that you must wear around your neck at all times.
Can you meet Indians inside?
Yes. I met my wife, who came from the Indian side.
When meeting friends, don’t forget that India and Pakistan are in different time zones. Pakistan is 30 minutes behind India in time.
Can you take gifts for Indians?
Yes. Both my wife and I carried sweets from both sides and exchanged them.
All gifts (and your bags) will be thoroughly checked on both sides of the border. If they don’t allow something that you’re carrying, you can go put it back in your car. They allowed my sweets, but not my GoPro camera, for example.
