IN what seemed to be a reciprocal treatment for citizens of Canada and the UK, the Narendra Modi government has withdrawn the e-visa facility for them, sources said.

According to a senior official in the country’s ministry of home affairs, Canada and the UK posed a lot of restrictions over the entry of India nationals in their territory and many of the times, the travellers have to face inconvenience despite making several requests to the concerned embassies to address the matter.

“The e-visa facility to UK and Canada citizens has been withdrawn from the first week of August this year. Now, they have to apply for a regular sticker visa at the Indian embassy. Tourist visa is already suspended and people visiting India under other categories of visa now have to apply for regular sticker visas,” the official said, ANI news agency reported.

Earlier, the e-visa facility was denied to Chinese nationals following the Galwan Valley clashes in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed in violent confrontation with China’s People’s Liberation Army personnel in June 2020.
