High Commission of India
For all your queries regarding Consular matters (visa, passport, police clearance certificate, OCI/PIO cards, Surrender Certificate, etc.), following procedure has been set up. You are requested to kindly cooperate and follow the steps outlined below:
As this stage, please address all your queries to BLS International Services Limited. as Consular Services relating to visa, passport, police clearance certificate, OCI/PIO cards, Surrender Certificate, etc. have been outsourced to them. Their contact numbers, email address and timings can be found by clicking here. They should invariably be contacted in the first instance. They have an earmarked team of staff to attend to your queries.
If the matter remains unresolved, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving complete details such as name, date of birth, passport number, nationality and the response, if any, received from the BLS International Services Limited. To ensure faster action on your case, please do indicate the Reference No., Name and the Barcode Number of your case in all your mails. These details are printed on the Money Receipt given to you by the VFS. Kindly allow four working days time for a reply. Let your mail be self-contained and avoid email attachments as sometimes they fail to open and carry risk of computer viruses. Help us in serving you better by not addressing your emails to multiple addressees in the High Commission.
Please note that it may not be possible to adequately respond to your queries about visa/passport matters on phone. Instead of giving you a tentative reply, we would like to attend to your query after consulting your papers/records. Therefore, we request you to e-mail your queries to us at email@example.com and thereafter wait for four working days for a reply. Sending e-mails to multiple addresses and repeating the e-mail frequently will not result in faster disposal of your case.
Only the mails/letters written by the applicants themselves (or immediate family members) are attended to.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org giving details of the case and indicating the response received during the Stage I and Stage II mentioned above. Please note that the only cases which remain unresolved during Stage I and Stage II will be responded to during Stage III.
