Bangladesh stops issuing visas to Pakistanis

Bangladesh has halted the process of issuing visas to Pakistanis for all categories.

Since the past one week, Bangladesh High Commission has stopped issuing visas as there was a delay in the renewal of visa of a diplomat from Bangladesh. Reportedly, issues emerged after Bangladesh refused to accept the nomination of a new Pakistani high commissioner to Bangladesh.

In October, Ministry of Foreign Affairs had made a suggestion to Prime Minister Imran Khan that since diplomacy is on a reciprocity basis, and Pakistani mission in Dhaka is being run by a consular-level officer, it was recommended to downgrade the Bangladeshi mission in Islamabad as well.

Dhaka has in the past accused the Pakistani High Commission of financing terrorism in the country.
