Authorised visa facilitation center in India is over charging and processing visas at snail space.

I am an Indian resident living in Mumbai I have a Kuwaiti Visa to be stamped from Kuwait Consulate Mumbai, when I went to consulate to submit my visa in Consulate they informed me to submit it through M/s. Mawared Services India Pvt. Ltd., as authorised visa facilitation center. When I went there to submit the visa they demanded charges of 9,463 INR in their name instead of consulate whereas the consulate fees is only 5,000/-

I filled the application form and submitted my documents with Demand Draft of 9,463 in the name of VFS services now even after submitting the documents it has been 15 days still I have not received my Visa stamped when I inquired about the same they said there are more than 1,000 visa pending from various agents that need to be submitted first, as they have limited quota of passport to be submitted in the consulate around only 100 per day whereas there are more than 500 applications per day.

I request you please print this article in your newspaper so that the Ministry in Kuwait come to know about the plight of the common man to submit the visa in consulate and the extra services fees they have been charged.

Answer: This is for the information of Kuwait’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We hope they do something about it to lessen the plight of applicants who want their visas stamped.

On the other hand if what is happening is the normal procedure, then the ministry may consider it a social responsibility to impress on the service company or companies involved to educate their clients to disabuse their minds that these companies are unnecessarily delaying in stamping their visa but that what they are doing are normal work processes.
