The camp that will remain open from June 4 to 16 except for June 10, was organised by the Indian High Commission.

During the Eid Visa Camp, applicants can submit their tourist visa applications on a walk-in basis without prior appointment date.

Special counters have been set up inside the camp by the Indian Visa Application Center which is run and operated by the State Bank of India to accept visa application forms, according to the release.
