Hi All,
A happy new year 2010 to u all.Have a blast !!!
Pls advise me on this!!
My consultant has asked me to go to the VFS Australia office in Bangalore, now that I have got my grant letter.
How long will this process take? Will there be a big queue at the VFS office? On what days is it open?Also I just got my passport renewed.Do I need to communicate the same over there?
My consultant is not aware of these details and so I am posting the questions here.
Bye,
Gopal

Hi Velamoor:

Why has your agent asked for you to go to VFS? Don't they handle Visas for the Indian Gov't (Visas to go to India)?

I believe for AU Visas you go to an AU Embassy/Consulate.

****
I can't comment on how long things take and the passport that gets the sticker should be the same one on which you did the DIAC application, if it's not then at the very least it will delay getting your AU visa sticker.

Clarify these things before you go anywhere.
