Indian Visa Application Centre to be opened in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 April 2010, 14:06 GMT]
Contrary to the Sri Lanka government propaganda of opening a branch of the Indian High Commission Colombo office in Jaffna, a private firm will be opening an office at Brown Road in Jaffna 5 May which will receive visa applications to India and send them for processing in the Indian High Commission for Sri Lanka in Colombo and deliver the passports to the applicants after processing, sources in Jaffna said. Mr. Ashok K. Kantha, Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka is expected to open the said Visa Application Centre in Jaffna 5 May at 3:00 p.m, the sources added.

The Visa Application Centre will accept applications for visa with passports and other necessary documents and send them to Colombo.

When the applications are processed in Indian High Commission in Colombo they will be sent back to the Visa Application Centre office in Jaffna which will deliver them to the applicants.

Meanwhile, the private firm which handles visa applications to India in Colombo is alleged to be engaged in malpractices making millions of rupees as bribe.
