The Indian Visa Application Centres (IVACs), managed by the State Bank of India on behalf of the High Commission of India, has initiated a ‘Cashless’ visa application system effective from Wednesday.
This means an applicant will be able to pay the visa application processing fee using online modes of payment.
Applicants will need to fill in the application form and make payment online before visiting an IVAC for submission of application.
The Indian High Commission in Bangladesh has been taking various initiatives to make the visa application process simpler and applicant friendly, said the High Commission on Wednesday, reports UNB.
The online payment facility is open only to Bangladesh passport holders. The existing mode of payment of visa application processing fee through mobile wallets also will continue until further notice.
The initiative of ‘Cashless’ visa application system will significantly reduce the waiting time of applicants at IVACs, said the High Commission.
