Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami said that considering the coronavirus situation, tourist visas for Bangladeshi visitors will resume soon.

He made the remark while speaking at a function marking the country’s 72nd Republic Day at the Indian High Commission Complex in Dhaka on Tuesday morning.

Vikram Doraiswami told reporters, “I hope it will be possible to resume the tourist visa soon. We really want to start issuing tourist visas. Vaccination in Bangladesh and India will further increase people’s confidence and boost the program of issuing the tourist visas.”

Notably, today is the 72nd Republic Day of India. The Constitution came into force on this day in 1950. Since then, Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 every year.
