We cannot go into details on individual cases. However we are aware that British citizens of Pakistani origin applying for an Indian visa have been subject to additional checks by the Indian Government and these have led to delays. We have raised our concerns about this issue with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in India, both bilaterally and in conjunction with European Union colleagues.
