* Indian High Commission in Sri Lanka rejects reports of halting issuing visas
Fri, May 13, 2022, 11:08 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 13, Colombo: The Indian High Commission in Colombo categorically denied that it or the Indian Consulates General or the Assistant High Commission of India in Sri Lanka have stopped issuing visas to Sri Lankans.

Issuing a statement, the High Commission said in the past few days, there were operational difficulties due to the inability of their Visa Wing staff, most of whom are Sri Lankan nationals, to attend office.

“We are striving to return our functioning to the normal levels soon,” the High Commission said.

The High Commission said it remains committed to facilitating ease of travel for Sri Lankans to India.

“Sri Lankans are welcome in India just as Indians are in Sri Lanka,” it added.
