INFORMATION CONCERNING VISA APPLICATION FORM
Beginning on August 24th, visa applicants must upload their photography and signature upon the filling out of the on-line visa application form. Even after their upload, the original picture must be submitted along with the "Recibo de Entrega de Requerimento - RER" application form and the other required documents.
