India inaugurates its largest visa centre in Bangladesh

India today inaugurated its largest visa centre in the world in the Bangladeshi capital to reduce the waiting time for applicants. 

Bangladeshis constitute one of the largest number of visitors from a single country to India. Last year, India issued 1.4 million visas to Bangladeshi nationals.

Visiting Home Minister Rajanth Singh, who is in Dhaka on a three-day visit inaugurated the centre along with his Bangladeshi counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan. 

The new integrated state-of-the-art Indian Visa Application Centre (IVAC) spread in an 18,500 square feet commercial area at Jamuna Future Park in Dhaka will replace all the existing centres in Dhaka in two phases.  

To mark the inauguration, Mr Singh presented a five-year multiple-entry tourist visa to a Bangladeshi national. He also announced the withdrawal of the existing e-token appointment system for submission of visa applications. 

Indian High Commissioner Harsh Vardhan Shringla, who was present at the inauguration, told journalists that it is the largest Indian visa centre in the world and possibly the largest anywhere.
