Frequently Asked Questions
Is it guaranteed that I will receive my visa or passport by my demand date?
The sole discretion for requesting additional documents by the processing officers, would be the only factual case where the extension of the time would be required. The last minute changes would make impossible to predict and extend the processing time, but in general cases, we have the absolute best to get the paperwork processing done on time without any delay.
I need a visa for two members or whole family. Can I send the paperwork in a single package?
Yes, you can send and receive your documents in one package to save on shipping charges.
Do I have to physically mail my passport to you for a visa?
Without any possible exception of the country immigration policy, visas do require the passport physically and in possession. We need to submit the passport with the application and required documents to the Embassy or Consulates where the Visa Officers will physically stamp the visa onto one of the total pages of the passport. When we have the visa stamped, we will receive the passport and will mail back accordingly to the shipping address mentioned by you.
