No e-token required for senior citizens for India visa

Thereport24.com Desk:

With effect from September 18, senior citizens from Bangladesh aged 65 years and above will not require prior appointment date or e-token to submit their tourist visa applications.

"Senior citizens can walk-in and submit their applications at any of the Indian Visa Application Centres in Bangladesh," Indian High Commission in Dhaka said in a press release on Thursday.

The Indian government earlier announced that Bangladesh nationals above the age of 65 years would be eligible for Long Term Multiple Entry Tourist visas valid for 5 years.

"This is a goodwill gesture extended for the benefit of senior citizens. It is expected to facilitate the ease of securing Indian visas and further strengthening people-to-people contacts and relations between both the countries," the release said.
