SAARC countries to further liberalise visa regimes

November 12, 2005 22:59 IST

In a significant decision to enhance people-to-people contacts, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation countries Saturday decided to further liberalise visa regimes to cover additional categories, including journalists with some years of experience.

Special SAARC stickers will be made available to such journalists who would be able to travel within SAARC countries without visa requirements, Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran told reporters.

At present, visa exemption is available to Cabinet ministers, members of Parliament and Constitutional heads.
