Jaishankar Raises Visa Issue With New Zealand Counterpart


Auckland: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Thursday urged his New Zealand counterpart to hasten up the visa process for Indian students waiting come to this country for their studies and also sought a “fairer and more sympathetic treatment” towards those who have been impacted by the pandemic.

Jaishankar, who is here on his first visit to New Zealand as External Affairs Minister, held “warm and productive” talks with his New Zealand counterpart Nanaia Mahuta.

India is the second largest source of international students in New Zealand pursuing higher education in various disciplines such as information technology, hospitality, science, engineering and architecture.
