Commerce Ministry to push for relaxation of Visa norms for foreigners in SEZ

The Commerce Ministry will push for a relaxation in employment visa norms for foreigners in Special Economic Zone units that bring in large foreign direct investment.

The ministry is receiving feedback from the industry, after which it will formally send a proposal in this regard to the Home Ministry, an official said.

At present, employment visas (E-visa) are granted to foreigners that draw a salary in excess of USD 25,000 per annum.

“The Department of Commerce would like to send a proposal to the Ministry of Home Affairs for consideration after consultations with the industries, particularly the SEZs,” he said.
