Is a will made abroad valid in Pakistan?

A Foreign probate of  a will made in Pakistan is proof of its due execution as far as the courts here are concerned, provided a properly authenticated copy of the will and probate are produced, notarial certification being sufficient. In other cases the court must satisfy itself of due execution of the foreign will. Probate cannot be granted of a foreign will executed within Pakistan relating only to property outside Pakistan.

Grant of a foreign probate though evidence of due execution of the will is not sufficient for the grant of letters of administration here and application must be made to the courts. Law of testators domicile in this respect is not binding.
