Compulsory application in person for visas

- This procedure is compulsory for every single visa applicant aged 6 years and over.

- All applications have to be lodged in person by making a compulsory appointment, with no exceptions.

- As the process requires taking the photo and the ten fingerprints of each applicant, it is no longer possible to lodge an application by post.
