India Resumes E-Visas For Canadian Citizens

The Indian High Commission in Ottawa 

OTTAWA (ANI) – India has resumed electronic visa services for Canadian citizens, the High Commission of India in Canada announced on November 22.

The notification released by the Indian High Commission in Canada said, “Holder of any other category of Canadian passport will need to apply for regular paper visa, in accordance with the existing modalities – details may be found on the respective websites of the High Commission of India, Ottawa; Consulate General of India, Toronto and Consulate General of India, Vancouver,” it added.

The move to restore e-visa services comes amid a diplomatic row between India and Canada. Earlier in September, the Indian Mission in Canada suspended visa services until further notice, citing operational reasons, according to BLS International.

BLS International Services Limited is an Indian outsourcing service provider for government and diplomatic missions worldwide. The company manages visa, passport, consular, attestation and citizen services.

Entry visa, business visa, medical visa, and conference visa were four categories in which India decided to resume visa services in Canada earlier, on October 26.

Notably, the ties between India and Canada have been strained after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made allegations of Indian involvement in the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on Canadian soil earlier this year. Nijjar was shot dead outside Gurdwara in Canada’s Surrey on June 18.
