Bangladesh has halted the process of issuing visas to Pakistanis for all categories.
Since the past one week, Bangladesh High Commission has stopped issuing visas as there was a delay in the renewal of visa of a diplomat from Bangladesh. Reportedly, issues emerged after Bangladesh refused to accept the nomination of a new Pakistani high commissioner to Bangladesh.
In October, Ministry of Foreign Affairs had made a suggestion to Prime Minister Imran Khan that since diplomacy is on a reciprocity basis, and Pakistani mission in Dhaka is being run by a consular-level officer, it was recommended to downgrade the Bangladeshi mission in Islamabad as well.
Dhaka has in the past accused the Pakistani High Commission of financing terrorism in the country.
