Visa, Passport Handling & Immigration Services
Our Visa & Immigration Department works closely with our Travel Consultants to ensure information is relayed to our clients as soon as it is available from the Embassy. At the time of ticket reservation, our Travel Consultants will relay all visa requirements for that particular travel specifying the duration of visa processing as well as the visa application forms required for completion. During the embassy processing time, our Visa tracking officer keeps an electronic visa log for all the visas that have been launched and the expected completion date vis-à-vis the client’s traveling date. With this, a quality check will always be done to avoid any inconveniences to our travelers.
