A new condition has been set for expatriates of this nationality to return to their homeland as soon as nearly 50,000 Indian expatriates have been registered on the online portal that collects data of citizens who wish to travel to their country in less than 24 hours since its launch from Wednesday evening.
"The data collection process will continue," said the Consul General of India in Dubai. "However, we have not started analyzing the data this way."
After the large increase in applications, the Consulate General of India in Dubai urged residents not to rush to register because the database will be available for several days and the number of people trying to access it at the same time is very large.
The portal was launched by the Indian Embassy in the Emirates and the Consulate General of India in Dubai on Wednesday, April 20 and as the website has experienced some technical difficulties due to the massive response from users.
He continued: "General priority will be given to workers who suffer from severe distress, medical conditions, pregnant women, the elderly and there are also a few students stranded and about 19 to 20 Indians stranded at the airport."
Those who registered at Norka must re-register and the consul general explained that even those who registered on the Norka Roots site would have to re-register on the mission site.
