    Please be careful of touts and agents when you visit the visa application centers

    Dear Visa Applicants, Please be careful of touts and agents when you visit the visa application centers. We have received reports that they offer their services claiming to be an officer of the visa application center and charge exorbitant prices for services which are either provided for free at the visa application center or at very nominal prices.  Please note that the visa application center or the Embassies do not endorse any agency or agents and cannot be held responsible for their actions.
