India, Maldives exchange diplomatic notes to implement visa pact

New Delhi, Feb 12 (IANS) India and the Maldives on Tuesday exchanged diplomatic notes for implementation of the visa facilitation agreement, which provides a liberal visa regime for the Maldivian nationals to visit India for tourism, business, education and medical purposes.

A Ministry of External Affairs release said the agreement will be effective from March 11 after completion of all formalities, including information being provided to all immigration offices, border points and customs authorities.
