The processing of payment at the credit institution or an online banking system can take several days. Printouts from the online banking system, payment orders certified by the bank and other documents certifying the payment are not considered proof of the payment having been made. The service is provided only after the payment has reached the State Treasury. Therefore we advise you to make the payment with a bank card at the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
