Visa rule tweak: Georgia sends back 52 students from airport
Georgia sends back 52 students from airport, NEW DELHI: Fifty-two of 62 Indian students who landed at Tbilisi on Monday to study medicine in Georgia were turned away from the airport despite having secured admission and carrying visas.
The students had secured admission at New Vision University and were granted D3 Visa (D3 category visa is issued to persons coming for study or research at an authorized educational institution or those coming to Georgia as part of an international educational programme). Parents said that frequent changes in the visa rules have impacted those who had been issued visas before the new rules were put in place.
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted that the Indian embassy had taken up the issue with the Georgian authorities.
