Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your purpose of visit. Kindly remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa and how long it will take to process your application or how long it will be issued for, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Embassy or Consulate.
