India suspends e-visas for Chinese nationals and residents

While the restriction applies to e-visa holders, there are scattered reports of people with other visas being refused boarding on to flights to India if they have Chinese passports or are traveling from China.

This is old and outdated news!

On Tuesday, February 4, India expanded the restriction to include ALL visas, both paper and evisa, previously issued to Chinese and those who have been in "China" since January 15.

Here is one such report that mentions a family with the mother being a Chinese national and holding an OCI card being denied travel to India from Ethiopia.

It does not surprise me either that there would be a few cases here and there like that.
