KATHMANDU:- Minister for Women, Children, and Senior Citizens Juli Kumar Mahato has said that the decision requiring women below 40 to present recommendations from the local level and family for visit VISA was not taken by the government.

Speaking at an interaction organized by the Ministry here today, she said that there is no truth behind the media reports about women below 40 requiring approval to go on a foreign visit. “It was only a discussion made by individuals, and efforts have been made to malign the government in a bad light,” she said. Stating that the Department of Immigration made a proposal to the Home Ministry to apply such a provision, a demonstration took place outside the Department today. The DoI has however made it clear that the rule would apply for only gulf countries and Africa, as many women were going on a visit VISA and ending up working there inviting risks.
