Witnessing your application

The Embassy will ring and check every witness before beginning to process your application. Your witness must be one of the professions listed on the form and they must complete section 9 by hand.

Please let your witness know that the Embassy will be calling during working hours to confirm that they witnessed your form. The Embassy cannot call outside of working hours. The witness should be able to speak English or Hindi to communicate with the Embassy.

If we cannot contact your witness, or they refuse to take our phone calls, your application will be rejected.
