The embassy has not been reopened for long, and there have been various issues with the new appointment system and the COVA form system. We may not be able to directly share all of these situations with the applicant, but we will do our utmost to assist with the application process.

To ensure a smooth visa application process and minimize any potential issues, we will spend a considerable amount of time and effort assisting applicants with reviewing forms and organizing document submissions. The visa application process has become increasingly complex, and we need to be in control of the entire process to successfully help you obtain your visa.  Please carefully read the following instructions to begin preparing your visa application.

Step 1: Regardless of which type of visa you are applying for, please use COVA-visa-form-filling-Tips to start filling out the COVA form, but don’t submit it.  If you have already submitted the COVA form, please go to step 2.

It’s okay if you have questions and issues during the form filling phase, please fill out the form to the best of your ability!
Don’t worry if you make mistakes, because we will help you check it later.  If you need our help to upload a visa photo, just take an upper-body selfie and email it to us.

Step 3: Oasis logs in to your COVA form, checks the basic materials, and then performs an evaluation.

During the process of checking your COVA form, we will make an assessment based on the information in your form and supporting documents.  If we are able to assist you with your visa application, we will charge you the relevant fee and guide you through the process of modifying your COVA form and mailing the required documents to our office.  If we determine that we are unable to assist you with your visa application, your credit card will not be charged any fees.
