    For their authentication process, i liked it coz you'll have your documents ready in no time. For their passport processing, i've heard it is a little inconvenient coz of their long lines.

    Even when they say be there 30 min before your appointment time, it doesn't hurt to be even earlier than that (like an hour) because the like begins outside at the verification counter.
