Avoid travel to India if not necessary: Doraiswami
Own Correspondent, Dhaka, January 10: Indian High Commissioner to Dhaka, Vikram Doraiswamy, said it would be the best for Bangladeshi nationals if they avoid travelling to India unless an urgent need. However, the land ports to enter India will remain open and the visa services will also be functional.
He made the remarks in response to a question from reporters after taking a booster dose of Corona vaccine at Sheikh Russell Gastroliver Institute Hospital in Mohakhali on Sunday. Earlier, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen inaugurated the Covid vaccine's Booster Dose programme for diplomats. Vikram Doraiswami got vaccinated there along with others.
Doraiswami said from January 11, everyone entering India will have to undergo a seven-day compulsory quarantine. This rule will also apply to Indian citizens coming from any country in the world.
