How to Book?
Please select the country you’re applying from, in the drop down list, to know more and schedule your COVID – 19 test.
1. I had already submitted my application before the lockdown, how can I track the status of my passport?
You may check the status of your application online through the country-specific website on www.vfsglobal.com (to access the country-specific page, please enter the country you applied from and the country you’re going to, in the fields provided).
If a decision is made on your application and the passport has been received at the Visa Application Centre, you will be notified to collect your passport as soon as the lockdown is lifted, and the Application Centre is open.
2. I had submitted my application just before the lockdown was announced, but I don’t know where my passport is.
Your visa application, if not already submitted to the respective Embassy/Consulate due to the lockdown, is safely stored at the Visa Application Centre.
It will be submitted to the Embassy/ Consulate for the visa processing when normalcy is resumed. You may check the status of your application online on the website of the application centre you have applied to.
3. How can I reschedule / cancel an appointment I’ve already booked?
If you wish to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please visit the country-specific website page (accessed on www.vfsglobal.com – by entering the name of the country you are applying from and the country you wish to travel to) and follow cancellation / rescheduling process as stated on the website of that particular country.
4. Should I undergo any special tests before applying for my visa?
VFS Global does not seek any COVID-related medical test reports for customers visiting the centre, unless specified by the country/embassy/consulate you are applying to.
Medical reports are usually a part of necessary documentation in some visa applications, though they may or may not be related to COVID-19. While putting together the documentation for your visa application, please go through the document checklist carefully.
These checklists are available on the country-specific page on www.vfsglobal.com (to access this, please enter the country you’re applying from and the country you’re going to, in the fields provided).
5. Do I get a refund if my visa is already issued but I can’t travel and enter a country?
We are sorry that you were unable to travel due to travel restrictions. However, in general, for issued visas, fees cannot be refunded. Visas are sometimes valid for several months and can be used to travel at a later stage.
6. I am heading back to my country of origin soon. Will I be stopped on returning to my own country?
Most countries have issued detailed travel advisories and have put in place border control measures, in view of the ongoing COVID-19-related developments.
Accordingly, some governments mandate quarantine for citizens and residents returning from specific countries or advise self-isolation, while others have specified which categories of travellers are allowed to enter without any additional testing.
For the most accurate information, do check travel advisories issued by the governments on the website of the respective country/embassy/consulate you are traveling to and from.
