New Singapore visa agency named
Dubai, May 12, 2008
The Consulate General of Singapore has announced the appointment of VFS Global as its third visa processing agency in Dubai to accept applications for Singapore visas.
Visitors now have a choice of three agencies for them to submit their visa applications and will benefit from a new web-based application “Submission of Application for Visa Electronically” (SAVE) which the agencies will use to forward the applications to the consulate.
SAVE will also help boost security by enabling the consulate to issue visa stickers with security embedded features that can pre-empt forgery and electronically link all stored information to immigration checkpoints and other Singapore consulates and embassies around the world, said a statement.
The outsourcing by the Singapore consulate to processing agencies to accept applications for Singapore visas had proved a success in facilitating the visa application process in Dubai, it said.
The appointment of this additional agency will provide more options for the public to submit their applications and to cater for the anticipated increase of visa applications for visitors to Singapore for the summer vacations, it added.- TradeArabia News Service
