FAQs

Each country has its process regarding passport applications. To get the most accurate information, check your country’s appropriate government website for all the instructions on obtaining a passport. You may be required to personally apply at a government office or submit your application online.
Generally, it is necessary for passport applicants to fill out an application form, provide proof of citizenship and identity, provide passport-sized photos, and pay the application fee.
It is of utmost importance to fill out the form truthfully and accurately.

The passport application process varies from one country to another. However, it may take a few days or up to six weeks to obtain a passport.

An official passport is also referred to as a service passport and is only issued to government employees. The reason for issuing such a passport is to let officials in the destination country know that the bearer is there for official business as a representative of the country in an official capacity. Individuals with official passports are not given any special privileges.

A diplomatic passport is given to diplomats who travel for official business as representatives of their home countries abroad.
Diplomats are appointed by the government to maintain political, social, and economic relations with other countries, as well as to conduct several official businesses abroad.
Diplomatic passport holders are typically granted immunity and given certain privileges, the most common of which is the exemption from taxes and prosecution in the host country.

The documents necessary for visa application vary from one country to another. To get the most accurate information, it is a must to check the appropriate government website of the country which you intend to visit.
However, the most common supporting documents for visa application are the following:
• Letter of invitation
• A photocopy of your passport’s information page
• One or two photographs of a specific size as decided by the visa office
• Proof of financial support during the trip
• Airplane tickets
• Travel insurance
• Proof of accommodations during the trip
• Proof of purpose of travel
• Visa application fees

The visa expiration date can be seen on the visa along with the visa issuance date. The time between the issuance and the expiration date is the visa validity.
