Those who do not have the required photographs may take an instant photo at the booth in the centre. This is a separate charge.

At the visa centre, applicants have to undergo mandatory collection of Biometric Data of the face and all ten fingerprints.

Submission of visa is from 9am to 2pm from Monday to Friday. Approval requires four working days. Tourist visa is valid for six months from date of travel.

    The process takes four working days, so any time before that is fine. However, I would apply two weeks before my trip to allow sufficient time to settle whatever issue that may arise.
