The Centre on Wednesday said all Afghan nationals must travel to India only on an e-visa and invalidated visas issued previously to Afghan nationals who are currently not in India.

“Owing to the prevailing security situation in Afghanistan and streamlining of the visa process by the introduction of the ‘e-Emergency X-Misc visa’, it has been decided that all Afghan nationals henceforth must travel to India only on e-visa,” the Union home ministry said.

“Keeping in view some reports that certain passports of Afghan nationals have been misplaced, the previously issued visas to all Afghan nationals who are presently not in India stand invalidated with immediate effect,” the ministry added.

Afghan nationals wishing to travel to India can apply for the e-visa at www.indianvisaonline.gov.in.
