Supply Chain
Process management

It’s important to note that these steps are a general overview of the supply chain process for visa applications, and specific requirements and timeframes may vary depending on the situation. To ensure a smooth application process, it’s recommended that applicants start researching and preparing well in advance of their intended travel date. Also, our standard service fees are charged separately and do not include urgent priority services and options.

1. Consultant's Research

This can involve visiting the country’s embassy or consulate website or contacting them directly to obtain accurate information.

2. Application Preparation

The application must be thoroughly checked to ensure first-time submission, which may include a valid passport, passport-sized photos, proof of financial support, a travel itinerary, and other supporting documents depending on the visa type (e.g., employment, tourism, or study visas). The applicant may also need to complete a visa application form online or in paper format. It is important to note that the Consulate or Embassy may request additional information in addition to the standard requirements.

3. Submission

Visas Zone submits the completed application package to the relevant embassy, consulate, or visa application centre. In some cases, online submission may be available.

4. Appointment and Biometrics*

* if required

Some countries require visa applicants to attend an appointment at the embassy, consulate, or visa application centre to provide biometrics (e.g., fingerprints and photographs) and participate in an interview. Visas Zone confirms the appointment date and time, and a representative meets the applicant in person at the Lodgement Centre.

5. Processing

The consular or immigration authorities review the submitted application and decide whether to approve or reject the visa request. The processing time can vary widely depending on factors like the applicant’s nationality, the destination country, the type of visa, and the specific consular or immigration office handling the application. It may sometimes take anywhere from a few days to several weeks or even months.

6. Decision and Visa Issuance

If the visa application is approved, the consular or immigration authorities will issue the visa, which may be a sticker affixed to the applicant’s passport or an electronic visa (e-visa) sent via email. If the application is rejected, the applicant may receive an explanation for the decision and information on any appeals process if available.

7. Travel

Once the visa is issued, the passport and visa are checked and delivered to the client.

Visas Zone is your guide to getting the right travel documentation and understanding up-to-date travel requirements. An independent resource, we are not sponsored by, affiliated with or funded by any government agency.

As always, my contact with Jacques Simons and his continued service of excellence remain much appreciated. Having used him as a consultant at the Cape Town branch for more than 10 years, I can only say "he is the best". This is particularly illustrated during the last month when he personally delivered my passport to me on a Saturday (after hours obviously) - so willing, reliable and friendly and helped avert a "travel crisis". The driver, Nero, whom I have also known for a number of years is also such a helpful and supportive person and a credit to VisaZone. I am always impressed with his "service" mentality and willingness to go out of his way to help clients. Despite the inadequate response from the service provider/Consulate (will remain unnamed), Jacques and his team always do their best to submit documents as required and keep me informed of progress during the submission process. As far as the collection process is involved, I received my latest visa within no time at all despite issues getting the visa processed in the first place (through no fault of Visas Zone) The invoicing process also remains top class - Shirley and the team have always been exceptional in their submission of invoices and I enjoy interacting with them.
