The agreement would be published. “We will share details clause by clause after the agreement is signed,” the spokesman said. Prime Minister Imran Khan will open the corridor on 9 November, after which the visa-free link between Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur and the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Indian Punjab will be open to pilgrims. The exact date of the opening and closing of the sanctuary would be announced after the signing of the agreement. (a) an agreement between the Government of the Republic of India and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to facilitate the visit of pilgrims to gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur; Narowal, Pakistan, was signed on October 24, 2019 to meet the long-standing demand of pilgrims for easy and fluid access to St Gurudwara and the operation of the corridor in time for the 550th birthday of guru Nanak Dev Ji. The agreement includes visa exemption for Indian pilgrims and Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) holders from India to Saint Gurudwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan every day and year round. There is no restriction on the faith of the pilgrim who wants to travel in the corridor. All pilgrims to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur must return on the same day. Pilgrims have the choice to visit as individuals or as a group and they can also travel on foot. Up to 5,000 pilgrims can visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur every day through the Kartarpur Sahib corridor. The Indian government has repeatedly called on the Pakistani government not to collect fees or fees for pilgrims visiting Gurudwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur through the Kartarpur Sahib corridor, taking into account the wishes of pilgrims.

However, Pakistan continues to charge $20 per pilgrim for each visit. The agreement was reached after three rounds of negotiations. Negotiations were extended due to deep differences over the various provisions of the agreement, and at the same time delays were recorded with respect to pulwama delays, India`s reluctance to form the committee to deal with corridor issues, and elections in India also delayed the process.
