 Stage Two: Interview
The applicant himself or herself, except the holders of diplomatic or official passports, should come to the embassy for interview, in line with the appointment. He or she who fails the interview will be turned down; Submission of fake documents may result in restriction in entry in the future. However, to pass the interview does not necessarily mean that the applicant could finally get it.

The applicant (or someone on behalf) may come to the embassy with the pick-up form to check the final result, on the pick-up date specified in the form (usually in 1 or 2 weeks after the interview). He or she who is granted one should pay the fee with ATM card or debit card in the consular hall, and then pick up his or her passport. He or she who is not granted visa would get back the passport directly without paying any fee.
