IMPACT — MEDIUM
India’s suspension of visa issuance to Canadian nationals will not apply to current visa holders, OCI card holders or renewal applicants in India.
Additional Information: The diplomatic dispute arose between the two countries over Canada’s allegation that the Indian government was involved in the murder of a Sikh activist and naturalized Canadian citizen. The Indian government subsequently issued a travel warning to its citizens in Canada, and Canada pulled some staff from its Indian consulates reportedly due to threats. While processing of Canadian visas continues in India at this time, delays should be expected. BAL will continue to monitor the diplomatic dispute and provide updates as information becomes available.
