UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and VFS Global have partnered to introduce exclusive visa service packages for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
Accordingly, UKVI and VFS Global will provide special conveniences and packages at the UK Visa Application Centre, aimed at making the visa application process more seamless for applicants.
The World Cup will be held in the UK from May 30 to July 14. With the World Cup last held in England in 1999, it has been 20 years since the UK welcomed tourists from around the world for this competition. "Cricket fans from Qatar are travelling to the UK in unprecedented numbers to see their heroes play on one of the biggest sporting stages in the world," a press statement notes.
The VFS Global UK Visa Application Centre in Doha is offering two special World Cup Packages - Premium and Premium Plus.
The Premium World Cup Package is designed to make the visa application experience more convenient with features such as Premium Lounge, walk-in without appointment, form-filling assistance, assisted scanning, SMS service, courier service and a complimentary Oyster Card to use on London’s public transport systems.
The Premium Plus World Cup Package has been developed for groups to ensure that the squad stays together. It includes the On Demand Mobile Visa Service, which allows applicants to apply and submit biometrics at a location of their choice. The package also provides form-filling assistance, assisted scanning, SMS service, courier service and a complimentary Oyster Card to use on London’s public transport systems.
"The Cricket World Cup takes place once in every four years. With this year’s tournament around the corner, VFS Global is excited to bring exclusive packages for fans travelling to London," said Vinay Malhotra, regional Group COO for Middle East, South Asia & China, VFS Global. "We understand that fans travelling to see the matches would want to make the most of their holiday by also exploring the UK.
"VFS Global is delighted to not only help applicants apply for their UK visa with ease but also with getting around the UK through BritRail passes and Oyster Cards, and tickets for various sightseeing attractions."
VFS Global is a leading outsourcing and technology services specialist for governments and diplomatic missions worldwide.
In addition to the packages, applicants can benefit from exclusive services on offer.
For instance, they can get their application processed within five working days with the Priority Visa service, or within 24 hours with the Super Priority visa service.
Prime Time appointments allow people to apply for a visa outside of standard hours – ideal for busy working professionals and groups of travellers.
VFS Global’s Premium Lounge is designed to provide personalised attention and assistance to ensure a more seamless and speedy visa submission process.
People can also choose from a wide range of products at the Britain Travel Shop, including Oyster Cards, BritRail passes, and tickets for various UK attractions.
