As per new visa regime a yatree is considered as tourist and Pilgrimage Yatra Visa is considered tourist visa that is why there is no column of pilgrimage visa in application forms and neither is it mentioned in new online e-Visa system. So a yatree would go through the same application criteria as a normal tourist and would apply on all overseas citizens of Indian origin but must have nationality of other than India or green card or residence permit of the respective country.
Visa fee is the same as it is for the ordinary tourist visa and all other requirements of documents are also the same as for tourist visa. Now one may also apply visa online through Nadra e-Visa system https://visa.nadra.gov.pk/ that would give you all the way for processing of your visa application. We as tour operator and team of our dedicated tourism professional may help you to gather documents required for yatra visa. The requirements may change with the passage of time and that is why it is advised to have assigned a local tour operator to help out in visa processing and hope that would save your time and make the process hassle free.
