The Indian High Commission has resumed issuing visas to Maldivians after a brief halt due to technical issues.

An Indian High Commission spokesperson, on Monday, stated that Maldivians can now issue Indian visas without any hindrance.

The halt earlier posed difficulty to several Maldivians who planned to visit India for medical treatment and for vacation during the schools’ mid-term break.

Whilst India and Maldives have maintained a strong bilateral relationship, India had expressed concern over the recent state of emergency declared in the Maldives. However, with ties getting stronger between China and the Maldives, India had stated they will keep mum on the concerning situation of the Maldives.
