Service and shipping fees will be charged once processing is started, even if the request is denied by the embassy or another official representative or cancelled by the client or higher authority. Embassy consular fees may be refunded in whole or in part depending on the policy of the applicable country. Thus, in such cases a prorated refund may be possible.

In case if the consular rates are increased by the embassy, consulate or government agency after payment to CLS is made but before documents have been processed completely, CLS will contact the client(s) immediately for additional payment needed (satisfactory documentary proof and receipts will be provided). We do not assume liability for delayed, lost, stolen documents, visas and/or passports.
