“However, it should be noted that the Consulate will provide only online postal visa service to the public. Counter or in-person visa services are suspended until further notice,” the Consulate said in a statement.
All applications, according to the statement, are to be completed online and copies of the forms printed and mailed to the Consulate together with supporting documents and applicable fees to be paid by Money Order, Postal Order, or Cashier’s check.
