With the easing of COVID restrictions and the resumption of regular international flights, many Indians are preparing to travel abroad. But, for many of them, the process is taking too long due to massive delays in obtaining visas, especially for some European countries. For example, the processing time for visas in the United Kingdom has been reduced from four to ten weeks. Germany has stopped accepting permanent residence visas. Meanwhile, the Danish Embassy in India announced last week the temporary suspension of applications for short-stay visas and residence permits.
