Apppcations will be accepted from 0800hrs to 1200hrs at the respective IVACs.
The other existing walk-in schemes of submission of visa apppcations for non-tourist visas viz., Medical, Business, Conference and other types of visas will continue as before. Separate counters for walk-in tourist visas for senior citizens and Muktijodhas will also continue.
This is further to the pilot initiatives started at IVACs in Chittagong on 9 July, 2017, Rajshahi and Rangpur on 10 September, 2017 and Mirpur Road, Dhaka on 10 October 2017 and is being extended to IVACs at Sylhet, Mymensingh and Barishal on a similar trial basis.
These measures are aimed at easing access to the Indian visa and strengthening people-to-people contacts between India and Bangladesh.
