Sending Documents: Fax or e-mail?

  • When an original document is required you should send it by mail or courier of course. But if you need to send a document for information purposes only you can send it by fax. Best would be however if you send your document(s) by e-mail, as a PDF file for instance. This will allow us respond quicker and assist you better with any consular issues you may have.
