Indian visa operations temporarily suspended in Bangladesh

The High Commission of India in Bangladesh has temporarily suspended operations at all its visa centres across Bangladesh.

The high commission announced yesterday that the visa operations have been suspended in view of the "lockdown" implemented by the government of Bangladesh from April 14, reports DD News, the Indian news channel of Doordarshan.

The visa operations had resumed functioning in October last year after remaining suspended for more than six months due to the Covid-19 pandemic which hit Bangladesh in March 2019. Visa was being issued under all categories except the tourist visa from the Indian visa application centres in Bangladesh since resumption.

In the year 2019, more than 16 lakh visas were issued by the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh. Bangladesh sends the largest number of foreign tourists to India.
