The Indian Embassy in Bahrain yesterday launched a mobile application, “EoIBhCONNECT”, to facilitate the consular appointment service.
Appointments for attestation services, tatkal passports and visa services are available through this app. Going forward, appointments with IVS, an outsourced agency for consular services, will be included.
“The new app aims to make consular services more user-friendly and convenient for our community,” said Piyush Srivastava, the Indian Ambassador.
The launch was part of the Embassy’s Constitution Day celebrations led by Srivastava. Constitution Day, also known as National Law Day, is celebrated annually on November 26 to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India.
The Embassy also took part in a celebration held in the Central Hall of the Indian Parliament led by Ram Nath Kovind, the President of India, via a live broadcast.
The Ambassador highlighted initiatives to revamp the Embassy’s website and relocate the IVS center to Dana Mall, Bahrain, with improved facilities to provide consular services.
Srivastava also briefed the participants on India’s initiatives and programs available for the welfare of the Indian Diaspora.
The Ambassador spoke about ICWF, the E-migrate portal, Pravasi Bharatiya Bima Yojana, pre-departure orientation training and the Pravasi Rishta global portal, and encouraged Indian associations to sensitize members of our community in Bahrain.
The event was part of the celebrations for the 75th anniversary of India’s independence.
