Visa rules relaxed for Pak women wedded to Indians -

  • tags: no_tag

    • There’s good news for Pakistani women married to Indians, or those married in Pakistan and wanting to return to India for compelling reasons
    • After reports that the women faced the ignominy of separation from husbands and children for want of a visa extension, the home ministry gave the green signal to state governments to consider extension of long-term visas of some categories, including women, without insisting on passport validity.

      The liberalised rules are only for Pakistanis who have come to India permanently, to acquire Indian citizenship. Only Pakistanis who have come to India on or before December 31, 2009, are eligible.
