Once we have a re-opening date from the passport agency, we'll get in touch to confirm the processing speed and to get approval for the total to be charged on your card and then will begin processing. Processing speed & pricing are subject to change if the passport agency will announce any adjustments.         


*Please include our service fee and return delivery payment or a completed air bill. Incomplete payment, incomplete applications or documents and wrong application form will cause a delay in processing the above visa application.

** The service fees are non-refundable, once we receive your documents and start processing them.
