We regularly discuss visa and migration matters with the Indian Government. I discussed migration matters with the Indian high commissioner at our most recent meeting on 18 March. The issue of visas for UK nationals of Pakistani origin was also discussed at the last UK-India Comprehensive Dialogue on Visa-related issues in July 2013. Our officials continue to raise this issue with the Indian Government ahead of the next dialogue scheduled to take place in July.
