Important Advisory on FAKE INDIAN VISA processors
Reproduced from Consulate of India at San Francisco.
It has been brought to our notice that a number of fake visa websites are operating on the internet , claiming to provide e-Tourist visas services to visa applicants. In order to mislead applicants, some of these websites have created images and home page templates mimicking the GoI websites for e-Tourist visa applicants. A few prominent fraudsters are listed below:
It is advised that the correct website is indianvisaonline.gov.in. Applicants are requested not to rely on any other website for e-Tourist visa services.
Recently I have placed
an order with onlinepassportphoto.com, I must say it was a very
smooth process. They are very fast at responding to your inquiries,
or if you wish they can answer your questions on phone. So the
experience I had with onlinepassportphoto.com was outstanding.
I say this because in the past, I have gotten many passport pictures
and they were very poor quality. In my opinion,this website is
the best out there, no one will be able to beat their service
or price. I assure you,you will receive wonderful passport pictures!
Hi , I want to thank
you for your excellent service. I got my pics and they are great.
I would recommend you to all my friends and anyone who wants to
get their passport pics taken.
The process is
quite simple and your response to any questions is great!!
