Visa Made Simple is not an embassy, and we are not affiliated with any government department. If you wish to apply directly to the relevant embassy, please consult their official website for guidelines on how and where to apply, application forms and for information on their fees. In most cases embassies and government departments charge a fee for issuing visas and passports, although this may occasionally be waived due to reciprocal or bilateral governmental agreements.
