A lot of Indian students are enrolled in foreign universities but due to the travel restrictions in the prevailing pandemic situations, they are unable to fly to the respective countries. The Union Ministry of External affairs said on Thursday that the issue of travel restrictions has been taken up with several countries at the ministerial level.
It has been reported that after the talks, the travel restrictions are being eased for the Indian students and they will be able to travel soon. These countries include USA, UK, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Georgia and Netherlands.
Giving details in Rajya Sabha, Union Minister V Muraleedharan said the ministry has been making efforts for easing travel restrictions wherever in place, for Indian students enrolled in foreign universities to make their travel to their respective countries possible. It may also be noted that the central government had urged the foreign governments in the past week to ease travel restrictions in view of an improvement in the coronavirus situation in the country.
The government has developed and designed a ‘Global Indian Students Portal (GISP)’ for those wanting to go abroad for studies. The portal will have information regarding courses, foreign universities, nodal officers, accreditation requirements that will guide the prospective students to make informed decisions.
