The Thailand government has renewed its pan-India visa processing mandate with VFS Global. The company will cater to travellers from all over India through visa application centres and drop-off centres as per the jurisdiction of the Royal Thai Embassy in Delhi and Royal Thai Consulate-General in Kolkata, Mumbai, and Chennai.
The outsourcing and technology services company would manage all visa categories such as Visa TR, STV and long stay non- OA, non-B (employment) except the medical treatment category. The company has processed more than two million Thai visa applications since 2005. In 2019, VFS Global became the officially authorised partner of the Immigration Bureau of Thailand for E-visa on Arrival (E-VOA).
With a bid to encourage tourism in the country and provide faster immigration to customers, the service catered to eligible travellers from 21 countries including India, China, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine. It enables customers to get travel authorisation online pre-departure within 24 to 72 hours. “This win is another testament of VFS Global’s excellence in business delivery, focus towards evolving customers experience and the unwavering trust shown in us by our client governments," said Vinay Malhotra, Regional Group COO, South Asia, Middle East & North Africa and Americas, VFS Global.
