Visa applications:What makes you want to rip your hair out??


In our daily experiences, people end up at the VisaRequest doorstep for different reasons. We just thought we should pick five out of the tons of reasons and share them with you:

1.The consular staff at Embassy do not speak English and application form is in Arabic!

2.Applicant needs assistance with filling in application form/requirements and embassy phones or VAC lines/emails are NEVER answered/ responded to.

3.Application for visa needs to be paid for online but the darn system the embassy is using isn’t accepting their credit card.

4.Embassy has already closed its doors to receiving applications…and its only 12 midday!

5.Applicant doesn’t want to go to embassy a million times and still be told that some requirement is wrong or missing with application….Applicant:“why did you wait for the third visit to tell me that bank statements should only be in English…you saw they were in Afrikaans the first time i came” Consular staff: “uh sorry, English only…next

Like i mentioned before,the reasons are too many to mention all…but bottom line is some of the stressful situations can be avoided. In most consulates you don’t have to submit in person and for Schengen states you only need to go in person once every ‘so many’ years to renew your bio metric data…then after that…you just use VisaRequest and their reliable drivers/courier service to process your visas whilst you carry on with your hectic schedule or sun bathing. Take our advice…Just avoid the visa application process headache. VM
