Bureau of Immigration inspects Nashik airport

Nashik: A team of officials from the Bureau of Immigration (BoI) visited the Nashik airport in Ozar, which is run by the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), on Wednesday as part of procedure before giving the permission for immigration check-post.

MP Hemant Godse said, “The visit of the BoI team to the Nashik airport will pave the way for giving the status of international airport to the facility here. The Centre has already announced setting up of an international courier terminal at the airport. This is a sign of movement of international air cargoes and passengers from Nashik airport to foreign destination.”

Sources in the HAL confirmed the inspection of the airport carried out by the BoI officials. “This was a routine visit of the BoI officials. Currently, we have to carry out the immigration process of international crew members offline. The Central government wants to make all the immigration process from Nashik airport online,” said HAL sources.

A senior official from Halcon, who was accompanying the BoI officials, said that the team had come for inspecting the infrastructure and the facilities at the airport required for immigration check-post. “This is the first step before starting the international cargo and passenger facilities,” said the official.

“After getting the approval for immigration check-post, the next step will be to include Nashik airport in the list of Indian airports for bilateral air service agreements with multi airline operators,” said the Halcon official.
