As I understand it India and Pakistan are at war. I have a bucket list dream to go to all three the nations on the Indian sub-continent.

Is it going to be a problem if I go to India and they see a Pakistani stamp in my passport?

  • It appears the land Wagah-Attari border is open, if that's the case I don't think it would be a problem, especially if you enter by air Commented Jul 25, 2023 at 9:55

    If you are British, sometimes the British government will issue a 2nd passport so that you can visit conflicting countries. I'm not sure how compelling your reasons need to be.

    If India & Pakistan are in an actual shooting war at present, Google News doesn't appear to know about it. Commented Jul 26, 2023 at 1:04
  • @SimonCrase it's not a shooting war; it's more of a cold war. No peace treaty has ever been signed. Only repeated ceasefires. Nonetheless, crossing from one to the other is possible. Commented Jul 26, 2023 at 15:29

    @Stewart AFAIK many countries offer the possibility of a second passport. For example after visiting Israel. The authorities know that a passport stamp can compromise one's future travel. It's considered a legitimate reason. Commented Jul 26, 2023 at 15:33

No, this applies only to citizens (and those that have origin) from Pakistan/India. There are enough people (eg: Karl Rock) that have done what you propose to do.
