Important Notice - All Visa Applicants
All visa applicants are requested to provide a notarised copy of their passport at the time of application. This includes:
• all the pages of your current passport, including any blank pages; and
• the biodata page of the current passport, and
• any endorsement page or change of name page in the current passport, and
• the back page with information of parents' names and previous passports.
Alternatively, if you lodge your application through VFS Global, the counter officer can certify a copy of your passport for you.
This request applies to all visa categories. Clients should have their passport with them at the time they lodge their application. Clients who lodge by mail must have every page of their passport copied and notarised by a Notary Public. Clients who do not lodge the above documents will experience delays in the processing of their visa application.
