Passports will be delivered strictly on production of original receipt issued from the Embassy. TD 8.000 towards ICWFund will be charged for each application from the applicants from 1st September 2017.

I. “ISSUANCE OF VISA: Visa processing will commence after submission of printed copy of Visa Application Form, required documents and deposit of visa fee at the Embassy. There will be no refund of visa fees in the event of non-issue of visa. Applicants are therefore requested to ensure that they provide all the documents and details and carry all original documents for scrutiny at the Embassy. Under normal circumstances, the Embassy makes every effort to clear visa applications of Tunisian nationals (except of those having dual nationality), within three working days. In case of other nationalities or passport holders with dual nationality, a minimum of five to seven working days are required for processing of visa.
II. Each visa application is considered on its merits and the Embassy may seek additional information at any stage during processing of the requests. Receipt of visa application and fees by the Embassy does not guarantee issue of visa. Visa may be declined without assigning any reason.”
