PIMS Verification


Recommended Posts

How I have to do PIMS verification. I do I have call them or Email them or is there any other Procedure.

There is nothing that you can do. Just attend the interview, if the VO finds your PIMS is not updated then they will send an request to get the info. It takes one working day for them to get it.
