India to resume e-visa for UK nationals
India is prepared to resume its e-visa service for the citizens of the United Kingdom (UK) for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak. The visa website will be ready in the near future so that applicants can apply for their visa on the same, the High Commission of India in London informed, NDTV reports.
It is to be noted that this service was reinstated for practically all nations earlier this year with the exception of a few, notably the UK and Canada.
In a video tweeted by the High Commission of India in London, Vikram K Doraiswami , Indian High Commissioner to the UK, said, “We are rolling out e-visas once again and this service will be made available to you forthwith. (Dates will be announced shortly). That should enable friends from the UK far more easily to India. So welcome back, e-visas are up ahead and all of our other services including visa at your doorstep remain available to you. We look forward to a good winter season in which everyone gets to celebrate their festivals in India which is the land of festivals.”
The caption of the video reads, “Team @HCI_London is delighted to confirm that e-Visa facility will again be available for UK nationals travelling to India. System upgrade is underway & the visa website will soon be ready to receive applications from friends in the UK.”
