The Indian Embassy today asked students who have returned to mainland China or are already in the Asian country to register at an official link so that the government can ensure timely facilitation of their consular needs.
“With concerted efforts, Indian medical students have started returning to mainland China to rejoin their respective universities. In order to ensure timely facilitation of their consular needs, Indian students are requested in China to fill out the registration form,” said the official notification on the official website.
To register, candidates must first open the link provided: eoibeijing.gov.in/student_registration — and then fill in the details such as full name, passport number, university name and registration number, batch, expected degree completion date, date of entry or return, residency status in India, contact details and more.
The embassy has also instructed students who have not yet arrived in China to fill out the form when they arrive in the country.
Meanwhile, Indian students are struggling to find direct flights to China, having to take different routes through Sri Lanka, Dubai, Hong Kong and Myanmar, among others. Those students who have managed to make it to China are holding interactive sessions on social media to help incoming students with any queries.
