India Resumes E-Visa Services for Canadians
India resumed e-visa issuance to Canadian nationals on Wednesday, two months after suspension.
Suspension was due to strained diplomatic ties following allegations of Indian involvement in a Canadian Sikh separatist leader’s death.
E-visas are limited to tourism and business purposes for Canadian nationals, as confirmed by a senior official.
The resumption coincided with Prime Minister Narendra Modi chairing the G20 summit.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed his participation in the virtual G20 summit.
This move follows the resumption of standard entry, business, medical, and conference visas to Canadians a month prior.
In September, 13 categories of visas were suspended for Canadians.
Summary: After a two-month suspension due to diplomatic strains, India has restarted issuing e-visas, specifically for tourism and business, to Canadian nationals, coinciding with the G20 summit chaired by Prime Minister Modi and attended by Canadian PM Trudeau.
