India Seeks Easier Visa Strategy With WTO Members

India has requested the members of World Trade Organization to help with information required to  ease the process of visa approvals due to the stringent USA Visa rules.

Indian Commerce Department brought in trade lawyers to draft a proposal by the end of July. A department official expressed, " We will try to find a mechanism which is not so much on market access but facilitation issues like ease of visa, transparency and advance rulings for services.” 

This will simplify rules of trade and customs based on the government’s requirement. 

The authority had stated, "Our philosophy is to liberalize all the modes in services, but we will emphasize more on Mode 4, because countries block anything to do with it."

Movement of natural citizens is Mode 4, in which visa issues is are common

The latest instance is doubling the charge of US work visa, which has affected the Indian software industry. 

Another official added that India should develop an alliance with other countries that can work on this proposal. Despite the talks on services during the Doha Round under the General Agreement on Trade in Services, no action has been taken since 2011. All the 23 WTO countries   plan to improve rules and open up markets to those who temporarily live abroad and provide services in telecom, e-commerce, licensing, budgetary administrations, telecom and e-commerce.
