Doctor Lane started this petition to Honourable Prime Minister,Government Of India

Hon'ble Prime Minister of India,

Greetings to you. May grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of the Omnipotent. 

 I am writing this on behalf of all Indian students studying medicine at Azerbaijan Medical University, Baku, Azerbaijan. We have been stuck in India due to covid related travel restrictions imposed by the Azerbaijan government, thus we have not been able to obtain visas for the past year. Currently, Azerbaijan accepts only citizens or permanent residence permit holders from 42 countries, unfortunately, India is not among them.


A few months ago the Indian embassy in Baku, as well as the university, took up the issue and the university submitted a list of all their international students regardless of nationality to the government of Azerbaijan. However, recently students from Pakistan, Iran and Iraq( these countries are also not on the list of 42 countries) started receiving their visas. We enquired with our university regarding the delay in issuing visas for Indians and they asked us to follow up with our embassy in Baku, as other nationalities received visas due to the efforts put forth by their respective embassies. We, as instructed by the university, contacted our embassy and they informed us that they are trying their best, however, we did not still receive any confirmation about our visas.


More than 100 students from India study at our University, though nearly 70 students are only facing this difficulty as the rest of the students have UAE residence permits and they can travel back. Our classes already began on 29th September 2021 and the university has given only a grace period of 10 days to reach back, after which we may have to freeze our course. They also informed us that there will be no online classes as it is a government decision. At this moment we are extremely worried and bewildered about our studies and future. 
I kindly request you to intervene in the matter and help us during this desperate situation of ours and make arrangements for us to reach back as soon as possible. It would be a great support for us if you talk with the Indian Embassy to get more details, to prevent an unfortunate course of events. 

Sir,Please do the needful as this is our future.
