The Bureau of Immigration has issued a circular extending visa validity dates until Aug. 31 for those unable to return home due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
BAL Analysis: A number of countries continue to impose travel restrictions from India because of COVID-19. While the Bureau of Immigration issued a circular stating that visas and stay stipulation periods will automatically be extended, foreign nationals may wish to submit applications on the e-FRRO portal prior to the expiration of their visas if they are stranded in India. Visas will be extended free of charge for a period of 30 days. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
