The High Commission of India is happy to announce opening of six new Indian Visa Application Centres (IVACs) in Thakurgaon & Bogura (from 6th January 2019) and in Cumilla, Noakhali, Brahmanbaria and Satkhira (from 12th January 2019). These new IVACs are being opened to further serve the needs and facilitate access of Indian visas to Bangladesh nationals, residing in far-flung and remote areas of Bangladesh.
At present, there are 9 fully functional IVACs in different parts of Bangladesh. The opening of these 6 new IVACs will increase the total number of IVACs to 15.
The opening of more Indian Visa Application Centres across Bangladesh and the provision of amenities, reflect the continuing efforts of the High Commission of India, in collaboration with its outsourced partner, the State Bank of India, to further streamline the Indian visa application process and strengthen people-to-people contacts between India and Bangladesh.
