Visa services had remained halted since March 12
The Indian High Commission in Bangladesh has announced that online visa application services were being resumed for Bangladesh citizens.
Currently visas will be provided in nine categories – medical, business, employment, entry, journalists, diplomatic personnel, officials, UN officials and UN diplomats.
The visa process in other categories would be resumed soon, the High Commission said on Friday.
At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic India stopped entry of all foreigners into its territory by halting visa approvals on March 12.
People seeking medical treatment in India found themselves in grave trouble since Bangladeshis often go to India seeking treatment.
From January 2018 to March 2019, 2,876,000 Bangladeshi citizens visited India, and on average 10% of them went there for treatment.
