Did they call the issuing consulate? That should be your first step.

Re: wrong foto printed on visitor Visa

its an error on their part or the part of VFS in attaching the photographs. Call them up and they should issue you new visa's.

Fee - since its an error on their part should be FOC. However visa processing is a money making business, so no guarantee

Check also the validity period of their visas. My dad was given 15 days and my mum 14 days. We noticed this the day before they flew back. We called up immigrations and they informed the airport police but to avoid all risks of having a bad record and maybe fees my parents had to stay their last night and almost an entire day at the airport. Luckily they offer beds @ zurich airport.

Re: wrong foto printed on visitor Visa

Thanks for letting us know, glad it was fixed smoothly for you.

On a side note, please don't use txtspk here on EF. It is confusing and difficult to read, particularly for non-native speakers.
