The Home Ministry on Friday extended till August 31 the visas of the foreign nationals stranded in India due to non-resumption of commercial flights on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is on gratis without levy of any overstay penalty as all visas are deemed valid till August 31. The foreign nationals need not submit applications for extension of their visa, but they should apply for an exit permission to the FRRO/FRO before exiting the country that will be also granted on gratis basis without any overstay penalty, the Home Ministry said.
