The VFS Global on its official website also said that additional slots are opened throughout the day to meet the high demand for biometric appointments. These appointments are free of charge and available to individual applicants and authorized representatives.


The VFS also stated that scheduling an appointment with VFS Global to enrol in Biometrics is a complimentary service. Be wary of anyone who demands payment for it.
