  • In light of the global Pandemic of Coronavirus, The Embassy of Portugal in New Delhi is until further notice temporarily suspending the acceptance of all visa applications (short and long-term visa, seasonal group, attestation, and interviews for seasonal workers) at the VFS GLOBAL centres and also directly at the Embassy in New Delhi. So we will start only with the following category:

    The processing of all long term national visas already at the Embassy waiting for a decision from the competent immigration authorities is suspended until normal activity resumes.

    Applicants who already had an appointment for visa submission will be contacted once the visa services resume and are informed that current appointment stands cancelled.

    Worker groups who had already had an appointment for submitting the visa applications will be rescheduled on the same order they were booked so far once visa operations resume and travel restrictions from Bangladesh and Nepal to India are lifted.

    Applicants for short term visa who had already applied before the suspension of services will have a decision on their visa applications by the end of the current week.

    Finally, it is to be highlighted that the visa fees already paid will not be refunded.

    We regret the inconvenience and request your best cooperation and understanding on the exceptional circumstances which have led to this decision.
