The Embassy has outsourced its passport and visa services to M/s Cox and Kings Global Services, Kuwait. The Company is operating through their offices in Sharq, Fahaheel and in Abbasiya (Jleeb Al Shuwaikh) since 3rd August, 2014. For information and advantage of all service seekers, the Embassy would like to inform the following:

Beware of touts/agents -   All Indian nationals in Kuwait are advised not to be misled by touts hanging around any of the three outsourced centres in Kuwait for passport related services.  It is informed that rates for their services like charges for filling up various forms is quite high as compared to the very reasonable charges for value added services made available in the outsourced centres of the Embassy.   Applicants are also misled by these touts to provide documents which may not necessarily be required to be enclosed with the applications and thus fleecing them.  

The rates for the value added services are displayed prominently in the outsourced centres for payment by service seekers. For ready reference the rates are as follows.

Beware of Bogus website fleecing applicants:   It has also come to the notice of the Embassy that some applicants applying for visa for India have been duped into filling visa online by some fake websites. eg: https://india-visas.com/index.php. They also accept online payment of fees from the applicants. All visa applicants are advised to be very careful about it and requested to fill in their online visa applications by logging on to www.indianvisaonline.gov.in.  This is the only official site for this purpose from Government of India. All visa fees are compulsorily to be deposited in cash at the outsourced centres at Sharq and Fahaheel.   In cases of emergency, visa can also be obtained at the Embassy on the same day with applicable fees. They can contact the Visa Wing of the Embassy of India in Kuwait (Tel. No. 22530600 Extn. 279) or Manager CKGS office in Sharq  (Mob: 97928978)  for any doubt or clarification in the matter.


Passport & visa services (timings) at Sharq, Fahaheel and Abbasiya and visa services at Sharq and Fahaheel are available from 0800 hrs to 1200 hrs and again from 1600hrs to 2000 hrs Mondays to Thursdays.  To help the Indian community, who are not able to visit during any of the working days due to the working time/nature of duty, it may be noted that  on Fridays and Saturdays, these services are also available from 1600 hrs to 2000 hrs.
