I have the honour to report that a number of
British Indians travelling on Pilgrim Passes issued
in India and desiring to return from Iraq, to India
via Persia have recently arrived here without
the necessary visa from the Persian Consular
Authorities in India. Bince the Persian Consular
Authorities in this country consistently refuse to
give a visa for Persia on a Pilgrim Pass issued in
India, these pilgrims have been obliged to obtain
from this Consulate regular British passport’s valid
for six months only at a cost of Rs.lO/-/~ each, an
additional expense which some of them can ill afford*
It is observed that while certain pilgrim passes
issued at Karachi, Lucknow, Hyderabad Deccan, Hangu
etc., bear a printed warning advising pilgrims intend
ing to visit Persia of the necessity of having their
passes visaed by the Persian Consular Authorities in
India, other Pilgrim Passes issued at Bara Banki,
Banda, Cawnpore, Unao, Basti, Moradabad, Peshawar,
et., do not bear this warning.
Seeing that its omission results in inconvenience
and hardship to certain pilgrims as explained in
paragraph (l) above, I beg to suggest that renewed
instructions be addressed to all authorities in India
issuing pilgrim Passes emphasizing the necessity for
the inclusion of the warning on every pass valid for
the journey to Iraq, and Persia.
I have, etc.,
The Secretary to the Government of India H.M. Consul,
in the foreign and Political Department,
