Express Courier Return

Avoid unnecessary travel, save time, and avoid the crowds by having your passport returned to you by courier.

If you’d prefer not to travel back to the Visa Application Centre to collect your passport when your application has been considered, choose Express Courier return for the ultimate in social distancing. As soon as your passport can be returned to you we’ll send it directly to the address of your choice* using a trusted and secure courier service, so you don’t need to travel to collect it.

*In certain locations this is limited to within the country in which you applied.

Passport Photos

If you need ID photos, don’t worry – you can use the photo booth at our centre to get new ICAO compliant photographs when you come for your appointment.

You don’t need to take unnecessary health risks by visiting a shopping mall or public place to have passport photographs taken before attending your visa appointment. Our visa centres are equipped with self-service booths so that you can take the photos you need at the same time as submitting your paperwork. You can be sure of getting Schengen compliant photographs and submit your application in one trip!
