Why would queuing in any line be an issue? You can use any in pak. Carry both passports and show whatever requested :)

Keep it simple and don't complicate it for yourself :) you are worrying for no reason.

You are national of both countries so it's your right to get admission into both!!

You need to prove that you're either citizen of the country you're traveling to or you have a visa if required. In your case, simply travel to Pakistan on Pakistani passport and return to UK using British passport. No one here cares about exit stamp etc but even they ask, you can present both passports. Simple! No queueing.

Hi,

From my personal experience I would strongly suggest that you get a NICOP before you travel coz when you arrive in pakistan they will just take a look at your NICOP along with your British passport and will stamp your British Passport with entry stamp on the day you arrive in pakistan.

Your British passport will NOT be stamped when leaving UK but will be definitely stamped on arrival at a Pakistan airport and will be stamped again with EXIT stamp when you leave pakistan and when you arrive back in UK it will NOT be stamped but they might ask you other questions to verify and establish if it's a legitimate document you travelled on

On your way back you will again present your NICOP as proof of citizenship of pakistan and your British Passport as proof of your UK visa free access and your British Passport will be stamped with EXIT stamp and thus will be an evidence that you travelled to pakistan.

When you will travel pakistan you will just present your NICOP and British passport everywhere from airline counter to all the way to pakistan and back to the UK.

NICOP card makes life so much easier and it's very straightforward to get from Pakistan HC, London.

I would advise you to take your pakistani passport with you just in case but it will NOT be stamped and will NOT be required anywhere if you have a NICOP and a valid British passport.

If you have any queries then please ask.
Which is it of the favors of your lord that ye deny.

1 Which passport should I show at airline check in counter in UK
British Passport and Pakistan NICOP

2. Which passport I should show while exiting UK immigration
British Passport and Pakistan NICOP

3. Which passport line I should be in when going through immigration on arrival in Pakistan
Foreign Passport Holders queue or Just any counter would be fine where your British Passport will be Stamped with entry date and NICOP will be checked to verify you are a dual national with visa free access to pakistan

4. Which passport should I show to the immigration officer at entry in Pakistan for arrival stamping
Present your British Passport which will be Stamped with entry date and NICOP will be checked to verify you are a dual national with visa free access to pakistan.

5. While leaving Pakistan which passport should I show at airline check in counter
British Passport, NICOP and return Ticket

6. Which passport should I show to immigration officer on exit from Pakistan for exit stamp
British Passport and NICOP, your British Passport will be stamped with EXIT stamp.

7. As I will show British passport on arrival in UK, should it have exit stamp when I left Pakistan
It will have EXIT stamp when you leave Pakistan.

Many thanks.
Get yourself a NICOP and avoid all confusion of having two passports, I hope your questions are now properly answered now and keep your GREEN pakistan passport with your old documents to be never used again. :D
