Indian embassy services boost
Manama, May 10, 2011
Octic International has opened a new branch in Bahrain's East Riffa as part of efforts to extend consular services for Indians living in Hamad Town, Sanad and surrounding areas.
Indian Ambassador Mohan Kumar inaugurated the office, which will provide consular, visa and passport services through its sister firm Zoma Travel & Tours office located in Jaradah Avenue, near the East Riffa Police Station.
Central Municipal Council chairman Abdulrazzak Ali Hattab attended the event.
Octic International was awarded the outsourcing of Indian Passport and Visa Services (IPVSC) last October.
The price fixed for all passport services is 800 fils.
'Even during the days of unrest in February and March our main office in Gudaibiya was open to the public from 8am to 8pm,' said Octic International general manager Fazal ul Haq.
