Please be advised that the processing time will be adjusted if your application is denied for the following reasons:

• Application form not completely filled out,

• The supporting documents presented do not meet the requirements requested 
• Any other reason 
• Fast-Track processing service is available as per the applicant’s request which costs additional USD 23. Fast track service normally takes (24 to 48 hours).


The Embassy accepts fees in U.S. dollars only. We no longer accept Canadian dollars.
All fees for services within Canada must be directly deposited into the following account and from the United States Money Order only:

• Account Details in PDF
• All fees paid for the visa application are non-refundable irrespective of the outcome of the application.


All applicants are, hereby, notified that they should make sure to have all required supporting documents available before depositing service fee to the Embassy’s bank account. The Embassy cannot return the service fee to the applicants, if their supporting documents are not complete, which in turn delays provision of the consular service to the applicants.
