Online registration and payment

Before you can hand in your passport and other documentation at the embassy, consulate or VFS-office, you must register your application in the Application Portal. If this is the first time that you are registering an application in the portal, you will first need to create a user account.

Register your application in the Application Portal

Once you have registered, you will receive confirmation by email, with a cover letter attached. The cover letter will confirm that you have filled in the application form and paid the fee. You need to print this letter and submit it together with the other required documentation.

Application fees

The application fee must be paid by credit card online when you register your application. Information regarding the current fee is available on the UDI website.

Please note that once supporting documents have been submitted and the application has been accepted as admissible by the Embassy, the application fee is non-refundable. This also applies if the application is later withdrawn or rejected.

In Australia, applications are received by the external service provider VFS Global. An additional service fee is payable to VFS Global when you hand in your documents.
