US Embassy Corrects Visa Procedure for Tibetan Refugees

The United States embassy in Kathmandu has started specifically mentioning ‘Tibetan Refugee’ in the documents while issuing visas to them, Kantipur daily reported.

Earlier, the embassy used to mention ‘Nepalese’ in the citizenship section while issuing them visas based on travel documents issued by the foreign ministry of Nepal, the report said.

The US embassy rectified the procedure after Nepal objected to its system of documenting Tibetan Refugees as Nepalese citizen.

Nepalese home minister Bhim Rawal had officially objected to the system and requested US government to rectify during the visit of an assistant secretary of state of US about three months ago.
