Global visa service provider VFS Global reopened its visa application centre (VAC) at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) ahead of the peak summer season and anticipated demand. The BKC facility is the second VFS Global VAC in Mumbai in addition to its current operational one in Mahalakshmi. The visa service provider operates a network of 567 VACs across 17 Indian cities.
The BKC VAC at Trade Centre would cater to visa customers bound to Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Hungary, Luxembourg, Poland, Norway, Slovakia, and Sweden. It would also cater to customers seeking attestation services.
For UK-bound travellers, additional visa application counters would be available at the BKC facility and the visa application centre in Mahalakshmi. The facility will also cater to France visa applications from April-end.
“With the reopening of the BKC visa application centre in Mumbai, we want to ensure an enhanced visa experience for our customers. With more countries easing travel restrictions and resumption of regular international flights operations from India, we expect an increase in overseas travel this year, particularly from India. We also have some optional premium services such as Visa at Your Doorstep (VAYD) for customers who prefer personalised assistance such as completing the entire visa application process from a location of their choice.” said Pranav Sinha, Head South Asia, VFS Global.
Spread across more than 36000 sq. ft, the BKC VAC is a large facility comprising 62 customer counters and other facilities.
