Frustrated At New Travel Restrictions By Czech Republic, Students And Researchers Knock Government Doors
New Delhi, August 3 (TNA) Covid has changed the world and how we live. While most have settled to stay indoors and are resigned to the fate there are hundreds of students who are missing education abroad due to the restrictions imposed by those countries. Some students who have one educational assignment or the other in the
Czech Republic are a worried lot and are knocking all possible doors, seeking help. The Czech republic has imposed fresh travel restrictions for those travelling from India and if you have Visa issued before August 2, the Czech Republic is out of bounds for all these people.
This has left hundreds of students, researchers, well wishers, families and relatives out in the dry since from April this year due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. The latest announcement regarding travel restrictions which was released on Monday explicitly says that it was "not possible to travel to the Czech Republic on the basis of a short-term or long-stay visa issued before 2 August 2021.”
According to reports there are more than 200 such education seekers who have been left stranded due to this decision of the Czech government. Many of them have taken to social media sites seeking help from media houses by publishing their problems and have also sought intervention of the Narendra Modi government.
These students have simultaneously petition the Czech embassy in India to reopen for Visa and allow them into their country.
Hashtags like #TakeustoCzech and #OpenCZEmbInd are doing the rounds on Twitter where people are mentioning the problems they are facing and are seeking recourse to their grievances.
