Dispatch of Visa

Dispatch of Visa

Once a visa is endorsed, your passport will be dispatched along with two immigration sheets through the same TCS Visatronics / Gerry’s International- Visa Drop Box , through which you had submitted your visa application.
 
The usual process time before a visa is issued is around 35 days. You may enquire about the status of your visa from the TCS Visatronics / Gerry’s International- Visa Drop Box  or directly from the High Commission.
 
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Can I withdraw my passport but keep the visa applications pending?

In case you want to withdraw your passport for any reason, such as travel to another country, please send a written request through email (cons2.islamabad@mea.gov.in / cons.islamabad@mea.gov.in) or fax (+92-51-2823102) and the passport will be returned through the TCS Visatronics / Gerry’s International- Visa Drop Box , through which you had submitted your visa application.
 
Alternatively, you can also send the request through the TCS Visatronics / Gerry’s International- Visa Drop Box , who in turn will inform the High Commission to return the passport.
 
You can also personally come to Visa Counter of the High Commission and make a written request to withdraw the passport. Please note that we would need to see valid identity proof before passports are handed over the counter.  
 
In case you authorise someone else to withdraw or collect your passport, on your behalf, please send an authority letter with the individual, which can be presented along with identify proof before passports are handed over to that person.
 
Please note that your application will be kept pending for a period of only 2-3 months, after withdrawal of your passport. Thereafter, if the passport is not submitted, your visa application will be summarily closed without prejudice to future visa requests.
 

Can I get my passport by courier, even if I directly submit the visa application at the High Commission?

In case you had submitted your visa application at the High Commission directly, (i.e., medical and family emergency cases), once the visa is ready, if it is not personally collected, passports will be dispatched after a waiting period of 3 days. Please ensure that you fill correct personal details, such as residential address and phone numbers as passports will be dispatched by TCS courier service on CoD (Cash on Delivery) basis at the given address.
