Information on visa application processing fees

The payment of visa application processing fees is one of the criteria for accepting a visa application. If you do not pay these fees, your application will not be accepted or processed. This is not a rejection of the visa applied for.

If the application is acceptable (submission of duly filled form, travel document and identity photos in prescribed format), it will be received subject to the encashment of the fees, which are non-refundable even in if the application is later rejected.

Please note:

Visa application fees vary depending on your destination, the duration of your stay, your occupation, and your age.
