#Parliamentarians get fresh ‘advisory’ on foreign visits
While undertaking visits abroad organised by foreign organisations and individuals, MPs should ensure
that “none of their activities” give an unintended impression that they are on an official visit on
behalf of Parliament. Also, before accepting hospitality, the members should satisfy themselves about the
“credentials” of the organisation or institution extending the hospitality.
These are part of a fresh advisory issued to Parliamentarians by the Rajya Sabha Secretariat. It says
that to avoid any delay, members should send their applications for acceptance of foreign hospitality to
the Ministry of Home Affairs at least two weeks before the proposed date of journey.
