As Cox & Kings shuts, Indian Embassy in US receives applications for visa services online via VFS Global
The Indian Embassy in the US will accept online applications for visa, OCI, passport and GEP services through VFS Global, a new service provider in place of Cox & Kings which has shut down the service. The service has come into effect from November 4. A fee of $15.90 per application is being charged in addition to applicable Government of India fees.

WASHINGTON, Nov 10: The Indian Embassy in the US will accept online applications for visa, Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI), passport and Global Entry Programme (GEP) services through VFS Global service provider, instead of Cox and Kings Global Services (CKGS), which has shut down its operations.

The service has come into effect from November 4. A fee of $15.90 per application is charged in addition to applicable Government of India fees. The applicants have been advised not to send applications by post to VFS before making an online application on the VFS website, according to a press release.

“It may also be noted that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there will be no walk-in service at VFS Global until further notice. All applicants shall only be dealt with by post,” it said.

The service centre of Cox and Kings Global Services (CKGS), which provides outsourcing service for Visa, OCI, Renunciation, Passport and GEP, had announced last month it would be shutting down its operations.

The Embassy provided direct limited services only in case of emergencies following the shutdown of CKGS.

The Indian Consular Application Centres are located in six cities: Washington DC, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta and Houston. In these cities, the VFS Global will provide the aforementioned services for Indian or US citizens, and for third-country nationals.
