Chinese Visa hurdle for India’s Northeastern states
The Chinese consulate in the Northeastern states of India no longer issues China Visas, placing another hurdle for Indians who wish to visit China.
People in the Northeastern states now have to travel to New Delhi and apply to the Chinese Embassy there for a Chinese Visa.
The move has created a lot of inconvenience for the businessmen from the region, said Federation of Indian Export Organisations Deputy Director General Debdatta Nandwani.
Nandwani raised the matter during a session with a visiting Chinese delegation organised by the Centre for Promotion of India-China Cooperation.
China is India’s largest trading partner. In December last year India and China set a $100 billion trade target by 2015, up from $60 billion in 2010.
