Consular Services

Consular Services constitute an important segment of the overall services being rendered by the High Commission and it has always been the endeavour of the High Commission to provide these services efficiently. Every effort has been made to provide detailed information on each service, viz. Visas, Passport Services, OCI, PIO Card, Miscellaneous Consular Services (PCC, Birth Certificate, Attestation of Documents, etc.). We have also provided all the forms for visa and other consular services at one place.

While you are always welcome at the High Commission, we feel that you can save a lot of your as well as our time if you go through the relevant sections of the website carefully. All information relating to rules, procedure, application forms, documents to be attached with the application, expected processing time, fees, etc. is available on the website. It is our sincere request that before sending/submitting the application, please read the instructions carefully and see that the application is complete in all respects, duly signed, photographs pasted/attached and other relevant documents supplied. Incomplete applications result in unnecessary telephone calls and correspondence, consequently delay in processing the same, increased workload at the High Commission and avoidable irritation.
