Public Notice on Consular Services

May 20, 2021

In light of continued health risks due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic it has been decided to extend certain consular services presently being provided directly through the Consulate, such as Execution of Will/ Gift Deed, Power of Attorney, Birth Registration and Sworn Affidavit for issue of passport of a minor, through the M/s VFS Centre located at Edinburgh. This change is being implemented with an objective to enhance public convenience and to cater to increasing demand for these services more efficiently. This change would be effective from May 24, 2021 ( Monday) onward.

2. Service seekers with confirmed appointments from May 24 (Monday) onward at the Consulate General for above listed services are advised to submit their applications at one of the VFS Edinburgh Centre at scheduled time and date of their appointment. Individual service seekers with confirmed appointments are being separately informed by email as well. For any clarification may please email to visa.edinburgh@mea.gov.in
