Because the main problems relate to the granting of work visas, as we well know, a traveling consular mission was organized in Bangladesh, in Dhaka, between April and July, which has already managed to grant more than 5,400 work visas. And we are preparing a similar mission in Nepal, because Bangladesh, Nepal, India are the most important sources of foreign labor”, Aurescu also said.
