General Guidelines, December 3 2015
Due to numerous telephone inquiries, at times it becomes difficult to respond to all queries on telephone. The applicants are, therefore, advised to go through the website of the Consulate to find answers to their queries which have mostly been addressed there. In case any further clarification about the status of application is required, the applicants may preferable communicate through email which would be immediately responded to.
