After Canada accused India of involvement in the June 2023 death of a Sikh separatist leader in Vancouver, BLS International, the agency that processes visa requests for India, announced, "Important notice from Indian Mission: Due to operational reasons, with effect from 21 September 2023, Indian visa services have been suspended till further notice" (BLS International, AP, CBC, CIC News). Resumption for special circumstances (e.g., deaths in a family, medical emergencies) alone would not count.
