Dear Applicants seeking Indian Visas in Bangladesh,
Biometric data capture will be phased in at our Indian Visa Application Centers in Bangladesh from 09/03/2022 as per the extant rules of the Government of India. This is the same data that is already being collected upon arrival in India for all passengers. Once the data is collected at the point of visa issuance, processing at entry points in India will be expedited. Accordingly, 10 finger biometric data and photograph of the visa applicants will be captured at the time of submission of the Visa Applications at the IVACs.
