It has been decided by the Government of India to introduce the Indian Community Welfare Fund (ICWF) scheme in the Embassy of India, Mexico City with effect from 1st April 2014. Accordingly, M$ 25.00 will be charged as ICWF contribution charges for each application for visa, passport, PIO card, OCI card and for each miscellaneous application for attestation. The sum of M$ 25.00 will be charged in cash at the counter of the Consular Section along with the usual consular fee for the service applied for.
However in respect of Consular service applications that are received in the Consular Section of the Embassy through courier, applicants are requested to send a separate cheque towards M$ 25.00 (ICWF) charges, along with the usual fee for the consular service applied for.
As such, no consular application service will be received without the contribution of M$ 25.00 (ICWF) charges starting from 1st April 2014.
