The India government has enabled Pakistani citizens from minority communities, particularly Hindus and Sikhs, to apply for a long-term visa (LTV) online, the Times of India reported. The online system will replace the manual system, and will also enable applicants to track the progress of their visas. The Indian government has been taking measures to update the application process for some time to manage the applications more efficiently. While the manual system of application will continue to operate alongside the online system for three months, applications will be received and processed online only from August 1.
