Bank Charges

Money transferred from another bank other than a DNB will attract a transfer charge. Applicants are therefore advised to check and pay all bank charges to avoid shortage of application fees. Any application in which the Embassy is debited with bank charges will not be processed. Please check with your Bank.

The receipt of payment must accompany your application. Application Fees are NOT REFUNDABLE if the application is unsuccessful.
