We have requested our government to take up this matter on urgent basis with the Government of India and also requested to include Darranga, Assam under the list of authorized exit points for International tourists. As an interim measure, until we receive further directives on the matter, we will freeze visas for tourists exiting via Samdrup Jongkhar with immediate effect until further notice.
