Please give a call to the Embassy before coming to submit or pick up the documents to avoid inconvenience in case of irregular public holidays or the concerned officials may be deputed in field work.

The application processing time for other consular services for Nepalese nationals would vary depending upon the volume of applications and the specific nature of the services. It takes 7 business days to process documents related to recruitment of Nepalese workers after the application is received. However, if further verification of documents is needed, it depends on how early the Embassy receives response from the agencies concerned in Nepal.
