Following an almost two-month break, India has started offering e-visa services to Canadian citizens again, sources with knowledge of the situation reported on Wednesday.

Visa applications were halted on September 21 due to strained relations between the two nations as a result of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s unfounded claims of a “possible” Indian connection to the murder of pro-Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Surrey, British Columbia.

However, India started offering Canadian citizens visa services again in October for a limited number of visa categories, with the exception of journalist, job, tourist, student, missionary, and film.
