India simplifies visa application process for Bangladesh travellers

The Indian Visa Application Centre in Mirpur from January 1 will receive walk-in tourist visa applications from confirmed travellers and senior citizens. 

Bangladesh applicants with confirmed travel tickets will be able to submit their Indian tourist visa applications without prior appointments in a bid to ease the process, a media report has said.

The Indian High Commission made the announcement in a press release recently. The move to eliminate the E-token system was part of efforts to ease the process of securing Indian visas, it said. The date of journey should be after seven days but within one month of submission of the visa application form, bdnews reported. The Indian Visa Application Centre in Mirpur from January 1 will receive walk-in tourist visa applications from confirmed travellers and senior citizens.

Those who already have appointment dates can continue to submit their tourist visa applications in the centres at Gulshan, Uttara, Motijheel, Mymensingh, Barisal, Khulna, Jessore, Rangpur, Rajshahi, Chittagong and Sylhet.

The Indian High Commission also announced that its pilot scheme started in October for allowing walk-in visa application facility to women and their immediate family members was ‘very successful’.
