India seeks early resumption of travel by Indian citizens to China, especially for work or study purposes

India is in touch with the Chinese side in order to seek an early resumption of travel by Indian citizens to China, especially for those who work or study there. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said, essential two way travel should be facilitated, especially keeping in view the fact that Chinese nationals are able to travel to India.

Currently, persons from China, including Chinese nationals, are able to travel to India despite the absence of direct connectivity. However, for Indian nationals, travel to China has not been possible since last November as the Chinese side had suspended existing visas. In March this year, the Chinese Embassy issued a notification about facilitating visas for those taking Chinese-made vaccines.

The spokesperson said, it is understood that several Indian nationals have applied for Chinese visas after getting vaccinated in that manner but are yet to be issued visas. Since these Indian nationals have apparently met the requirements laid down by the Chinese side, Mr Bagchi hoped that the Chinese Embassy would be able to issue them visas soon.
