BGN VETERAN SERVICES

GURKHA VETERANS’ ADVICE CENTRES (GVAC) / DARJEELING VETERANS’ ADVICE CENTRES (DVAC)

Due to unreliability of postal services, we have started sending Life Certificates to overseas pensioners through emails and found this method to be very effective.  We are aiming to capture everyone living abroad this way by the end of this year.  Consequently, we encourage all pensioners to update their email addresses with us where possible – this will allow us to send our pensioners not only the life certificates but also expiry notices in good time.  Life Certificate can also be downloaded from this website, complete and have it verified through their nearest GVAC/DVAC/AWC; alternatively, pensioners living out of Nepal/India can also have their Life Certificates verified by the persons listed on the back page of the Certificate.  Those in the UK can still renew it through Gurkha Welfare Advice Centres (GWACs) in Salisbury or Aldershot.  However, pensioners in Nepal are required to visit their nearest GVAC/DVAC/AWC to have their Life Certificates verified as far as is practicable.

GVACs/DVAC are one-stop shops and hence, your first point of contact for everything you need.  Please contact your nearest GVACs/DVAC to receive our services as shown below:
