We have two Visa services that you can choose:
- STANDARD Service – takes 14 working days to process after we submitted your application to the immigration system (usually between 2 to 3 weeks if there are no public holidays)
- EXPRESS Service – takes 7 working days to process (after we submitted your application to the immigration system (usually between 1 – 2 weeks if there are no public holidays)
So how long does the process take Visa in total?
Depends mainly on how the weekends fall, how fast you can provide all documents and how long your bank takes to process the payment. You need to add 3 to 14 days to the processing time depending on the circumstances.
What are the steps?
STEP 1: APPLICATION
Fill up the online application form
STEP 2: VALIDATION & INVOICE – usually within 1 working day
We validate your documents and issue the invoice usually within 1 working day (MO-FR). Sometimes the document scans are not good enough or some data is not correct, or we find inconsistencies in your application, then we will get back to you and ask for new scans or updates etc. – this can cause delays.
STEP 3: PAYMENT (1-3 days / or more!)
Depending on the payment method you choose, this usually takes 1-3 days. If, you choose however to transfer from abroad to our local bank account (international transfer) this process can sometimes take a week or longer, depending on the facilitating banks.
STEP 4: SUBMISSION (MO-FR)
We will submit the application and start the process after we have received the payment. From this moment onwards the Visa Process at the immigration takes 10-14 working days, depending on the service you choose.
