We apologise for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and kind co-operation. Your safety is our priority. As part of precautionary measures, customers visiting our Visa Application Centres may be subjected to body temperature checks to assess their health conditions and required to wear face mask and gloves. Customers exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, including fever (higher than 38 degrees Celsius), cough and difficulty breathing will be allowed to reschedule their appointment for another day and will be advised to seek medical attention at the nearest healthcare facility of their choice. Apart from the safety procedures conducted, please note that –

    1. Limited number of customers with mandatory prior appointment only will be allowed inside the Visa Application Centre at a time.
    2. Customers attending the VAC are requested to wear a face mask for safety reasons.
