Default NICOP and FIA protector - Pakistan

Hi,
Can anyone from Pakistan confirm if they got a NICOP from NADRA and / or a protector from FIA. Someone told me those are mandatory for people moving abroad.

It is a kind of general insurance for employees/Pakistanis working abroad and this insurance process is administered by OPF.

Thanks.

Yes well said....I wonder what if it might be required by Pakistani Consulate in Australia for passport renewal and other misc verification services currently or in future.... have to confirm that aspect of its utility.....because in UAE Pakistani consulate demands NICOP to renew passport but in case of unavailability valid CNIC is also acceptable.

Thanks
