How come man? If you read the visa stamp carefully, the embassy fee itself is about 23$ or something and mustafa charges about 10$ extra for the service. I am surprised how can any TA do it for less than 23$ :???:

Because, for my passport, visa fee is only 7 $ :D add the 10 $ service fee and you get 17 $ ;) ;)

As I said, it was as far as I could remember.....the alternative might have been she came in as a tourist under her new passport, filling in the white card. We then post the letter to MoM with the white card, they internally 'transfer' the DP to the new passport and cancel the white card.

Either way, I know we only had to write to MoM to transfer the DP from the old passport to the new one.

Doesn't matter. Indons can walk in. Well, sometimes they will ask for something that can ensure them that they are "legal". In my case, sometimes they want to see the EP.
