A circular issued on Thursday stated that private sector participants attending seminars, conferences, workshops, training etc. will be allowed to take a foreign exchange allowance of up to $400 per day of the programme.
They will also get one additional day as transit on the basis of invitation letters received in the names of the applicants or their employer institutions, the circular said.
