Agartala: From November 15, a limited number of Bangladeshi citizens will be given tourist visas to travel to India. This was stated by Indian High Commissioner to Dhaka Vikram Doraiswami.
He said this while standing at the Akhaura border on Tuesday morning. The Indian High Commissioner returned to the country from Dhaka via Akhaura check post on the same day.
“For now, a limited time visa will be issued. Single-entry visa will be given to the citizens of Bangladesh. The visas will remain valid for 120 days and one can stay in India for 30 days because there are still some Covid fears everywhere. If the situation improves, more visas will also be issued,” Doraiswami added.
He also said that a team is coming next week to inspect the Akhaura-Agartala railway and that the government has a goal to complete this work quickly.
