Bhutanese refugees can seek resident visas in foreign countries

In order to internationalize the Bhutanese refugee problem, which remains as a thorn in the bilateral relations between Nepal and Bhutan for the past 16 years, the government has given the Bhutanese refugees living in Nepal permission to seek resident visas in third countries, Kantipur Daily reports. It has been stated in the decision recently taken by foreign and home ministry that“Bhutanese refugees would be given permission to begin process for resident visas in third countries”. After 15 rounds of talks between Nepal and Bhutan on the fate of Bhutanese refugees living in 7 camps in eastern Nepal failed to bear fruit, the government had extended its support to the refugee rehabilitation process that started 4 years ago. ag July 04 07
