    India Suspends Visas Of France, Germany, Spain Nationals

    India citizens are strongly advised to refrain from travelling to France, Spain and Germany

    In wake of the rising number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases globally, the government of India has now suspended visas and e-visas granted on or before March 11th, 2020 to nationals of three major European countries — France, Germany and Spain.

    India has registered a total of 62 confirmed coronavirus cases, which is up from 44 a day before March 10th, 2020.

    With respect to restrictions on visa, besides the already issued instructions, all regular Visas (including e Visas) which have been granted to nationals of France, Germany and Spain on or before March 11th, 2020 and where these foreigners have not yet entered India stands suspended.

    Regular visas (including e Visas) granted to all foreign nationals who have travel history to these countries on or after February 1st, 2020 and who have not yet entered India also stands suspended. 

    Visas of all foreigners already in India remain valid and they may contact the nearest FRRO/FRO through e-FRRO module for extension/conversion etc of their visa or grant of any consular service if they choose to do so. A notification to this effect is being issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BOI).

    Further, in continuation of already issued advisories on travel to India citizens, India citizens are strongly advised to refrain from travelling to France, Spain and Germany.

    An Advisory is issued for all incoming international passengers retuning to India to self-monitor their health and follow the recommended ‘dos and don’ts’ since more than 100 countries across the world now have reported cases of COVID-19 and travellers to these countries, or any person having travelled abroad, might possibly have come in contact with people affected with COVID-19 during their stay there or even while in transit at airports.

    The Advisory also calls for passengers with travel history to China, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, Japan, Italy, Thailand, Singapore, Iran, Malaysia, France, Spain and Germany to undergo self-imposed quarantine for a period of 14 days from the date of their arrival, and their employers to facilitate work-from-home for such employees during this period.

    More than 1400 contacts have been put under surveillance for these positive cases, till date. Also, 404 Indian contacts of the US citizen tested positive for COVID-19 in Bhutan have been identified and put under surveillance in Assam.
