Of course, you are not required to pick up your passport personally after issuing the visa. However, we can not give anyone who comes to us and claims that he should pick up the passport for another, this pass.
So, if you ask another person to pick up your passport, please give it a power of attorney that will legitimize it. Even for underage children, both parents will sign their passport. To simplify the granting of this authorization, we have provided a sample copy here.
