Courier return of passports made mandatory for visa customers
in light of the COVID-19 alert and keeping in mind the health and safety of our customers and employees, the courier service for return of passports to visa customers has been made mandatory.
Customers no longer need to visit the Visa Application Centre to pick up their passport once it is ready for collection – the passport will be couriered to their location of choice (serviceable by our courier partner, UPS).
The courier service has been made mandatory for a temporary period to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus and reduce the footfall at the Visa Application Centre.
