Document Requirements

These requirements are applicable for US Citizens applying at the Washington DC Office

Please send TDS your current valid and signed passport. It must not expire within 6 months and must have at least one blank visa page. Foreign Embassies cannot issue a visa on a page not labeled as a Visa page. Amendment and Endorsement pages in the back of the passport cannot be used for issuance of a visa.
A visa cannot be stamped on a page even if only one Small Stamp is on the visa page. If you do not have any blank visa pages in your passport, TDS can assist you in applying for additional pages. If your passport expires within 6 months, you must renew your passport and then we will secure your visa with the new passport.

 

Please send 2 recent professional passport-type photographs.
Digital and non-passport photographs are not acceptable.

Please send a copy of your round trip airline tickets, or itinerary or e-ticket, or letter of confirmation from a travel agent. The itinerary must show the applicant's name, date of arrival and departure from the country, and flight information. The Embassy does not recommend purchasing your ticket prior to a visa being issued.

 

 

A copy of your hotel confirmation(s) and a round trip ticket or a letter from a Travel Agency is required if traveling for tourist purposes.

 

 

 

For visiting friends and relatives, an invitation letter by family members or friends is required.

 

 

 

Ask your Family or Friends to secure a Visa Approval Authorization notice from the Ministry of Security and Police.
If your host can secure an approval from the Ministry the visa processing time is dramatically faster, most visa applications we submit on behalf of our clients that provide the approval notice are issued within 1 business day.
Whereas without the approval the processing time is 15-20 business days on average.
