The interview, conducted by the Consul, may last for one to two hours. Usually, Power of Attorney letters are issued at the end of the interview. In some cases, the applicants will be asked to return on a specified day and time to pick up the letter. At the request of applicants, where their re-appearance at the Embassy is not necessary, we can send their letter and documents by post, in which case the applicants will be required to present a registered, self-addressed return envelope or enclose the necessary payment to cover postage cost.
