He made this remark while speaking at a Press Conference held at the President’s Office this afternoon to brief the local media on the highlights of the State Visit.

Speaking at the Press Conference, President underscored that during the State Visit, Indian government agreed to provide leniency in facilitating visa arrangements for Maldivian citizens travelling to India for education, tourism and medical purposes. He further stated that this would enable many Maldivians who send their children to school in India, to be able to accompany them and that the agreement would also facilitate easier visa access for Maldivian citizens and their families, who travel to India for medical treatment.
