An entity functioning abroad, to which most countries depend on for visa issuance has extended their services of providing visa to anyone approaching them to Europe without physically leaving your home.
An agency called VFS Global has started ”on-demand mobile visa” service all over India to avail UK visa. The agency will be at your doorstep on demand, will collect the required information from you and will be back to you with the UK visa.
On your request, VFS Global on request will send an officer along with the equipment to take biometric information of the persons with a fixed fee and the venue for the visa processing can be selected by the user as on demand. Presently the firm will avail visa only to UK but soon will extent their services to Hungary and Denmark also. Soon it might issue visa for other European counties as well.
“High net worth individuals, large groups and those going for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) have long been asking for a hassle-free experience where all the processes can be completed at a place of their choice, like their home or office,” said VFS Global COO (south Asia) Vinay Malhotra.
VFS Global will charge £750 (about Rs 70,500 at the current exchange rate) for a group of 10 visitors for UK visa. Any incremental visitor will be charged an average of £75 (Rs 7,050) additionally. The firm will soon provide the visa-on-demand service for individuals too and are currently working on price structure.
VFS Global has visa centres spread across 16 Indian cities. The visa-on-demand facility will be very beneficial for those who live in towns that do not have a centre. The facility will provide them a hassle-free experience where all the procedures can be completed at their own place.
