Our aim is to provide the best possible Personal Service to complement and enhance
the efficiency and speed of our Consular Services which consistently have the
success rate
amongst all
of our competitors for first time acceptance of applications
on first lodgement.

We have sent a copy of the above statement to all known competitors.
Not one reply or comment has been received that contests our claim.

This record achievement (corroborated by results which are updated daily) is maintained
because each application is checked for minimum requirements before submission.
This is the basis of us achieving almost 100% successful acceptances at first attempt.

Time is actually budgeted in order to allow for a skilled inspection of all the important
sections of the application that are troublesome and which are known to be problematic
either the content or the way it is presented are not both exactly as required,

                          *Unique Selling Point


Supplements apply at certain embassies
Discounts are sometimes available when we submit checked applications in quantity

        Reducing supplement is to allow for the additional administration involved due to the
                                                pre-arranging, pre-notification, pre-preparation and/or special
                                                presentation that is required by certain embassies. 
                                                As we are able to pass on the benefit of savings made when
                                                processing additional applications at the same time, the
                                                supplement reduces in order to provide the same discounts
                                                (25%, 50% or 75% off, etc.) that we normally give to each
                                                additional traveller.

        Fixed supplement is applied when each application incurs the same additional costs.

        Single supplement is activated when, due to the intensive pre-administration required
                                                or the inevitable waiting time expected, it would not be economic
                                                to process a single application.
                                                Unlike many of our competitors, we do not stockpile 
                                                applications for economic or for volume processing.
                                                We lodge each and every application at the first opportunity
                                                once all the requirements are met, even if it means visiting an
                                                embassy or a consular authority to submit only one application.

        Off-route supplement is only applicable if the relevant consular or government office
                                                is outside central London or significantly off our normal routes.
                                                The supplement will allow for the two journeys to both submit
                                                the application/s and collect the processed documents.

                                                Unlike most of our competitors, we do not charge more
                                                for each application or submission.  We charge only the
                                                one supplement per batch of applications or documents that
                                                are being submitted and collected at the same time.

        Miscellaneous supplement may apply only temporarily at an individual embassy or it
                                                may be relevant only to a specific classification of visa or it may
                                                be due to a peculiarity at a particular embassy.
                                                If it is because we are required to pay for consular fees on an
                                                additional separate visit or at
a different office building or at a
                                                bank or a post office the supplement will be charged at 50% of
                                                the '1st traveller' rate for the first application and at 6.25% of the
                                                '1st traveller' rate for each subsequent application that is dealt
                                                with at the same time.

        Waiting Time supplement is a one-off set-charge to cover the appropriate contingency
                                                arrangements needed to prepare for and make due allowance
                                                for the unpredictable waiting time that will inevitably be incurred
                                                due to the excessive queues that prevail at certain embassies.
                                                The supplement will allow for the waiting time anticipated on the
                                                two consular visits to both lodge the application/s and collect
                                                the processed documents.

                                                Unlike most of our competitors, we do not require each
                                                traveller to pay more.  We charge only the one supplement
                                                per embassy, irrespective of the total number of applications
                                                that are being made and submitted at the same time.  We do
                                                not charge more for every application, each traveller or
                                                per passport.

                                                The waiting time at a particular embassy can vary due to their
                                                busy, peak or seasonal periods.

Refer to your destination country to see if a supplement or a discount is currently applicable.

          be able to trace the possible cause of any delay and take appropriate action.

          Our representative will not leave unless contact has been established with the
          traveller or else with the approval of the traveller's office, agent or representative.

            6.  Once an order is received, a Job No. is generated for reference and
                    tracking purposes.  It is most important that this Job No. is quoted
                    on every communication and especially when you are SENDING
                    DOCUMENTS to us.  For fast-track attention it is best to also
the Job No. at the bottom left corner of the envelope.

                    Failure to quote the Job No. WILL CAUSE DELAY and may also
                    result in double job processing caused by the creation of a duplicate 
                    file with a different Job No. (very dangerous) and charging twice in
                    error, which will in turn incur extra costs.

                    Also, when you make a telephone enquiry, we will be able to update

                    you quicker if the Job No. can be mentioned if we need to ask for it.

            7.  Please enclose a self-addressed envelope.
                    This eliminates any misreading of individual addresses and any
                    confusion as to whether the completed documents are to be returned
                    direct to the traveller or to the travel agent or to the company address.
                    The envelope does not have to be stamped or postage paid and it
                    needs to be only large enough for the return of your passport/s.
                    The Post Office and Royal Mail prefer a size C5 envelope.

            8.  Please retain and do not send passport wallets.
                    Embassies do not like them and there is a risk of loss.

            9.  Orders that are sent to us direct from your client, contractor, employee
                    or the traveller should be clearly noted that they are to be charged to
                    your account facility so as to avoid any delay that involves payment.

          10.  Make all payments to "Visa World" and not to an embassy.
                    They will not accept your cheque.

          11.  If you are not using our order form, please enclose a separate note
                    with your contact name, address and telephone number, which
                    method of return dispatch you require (e.g.  by Royal Mail Special
                    Delivery Next Day) and of course, the dispatch address.  If you are
                    a travel agent, please ensure that your branch is clearly marked.

          12.  If you will require in-depth information or advice when telephoning, we
do hope you will understand that we can only provide this after receipt
                    of a deposit to confirm that it is your intention to place an order with us.
                    If we cannot process your application, your deposit will be returned in
                    full and no charge will be made.



            1.  Travel arrangements should not be confirmed until the required
                    passport, visa or travel authority is obtained.

                    > If visa requirements call for sight of tickets, an itinerary, evidence
                          of confirmed travel plans or confirmation of a hotel booking, you
                          are advised to only commit to travel or accommodation expenses
                          subject to a visa being obtained.

                          > If you need Travel Insurance, do compare ours for cover and value.
  Most 'business visa' applications require a company letter, at least.

            3.  Embassy fees can vary and may differ from the amount expected.
                    They may be higher or lower and are always charged at cost.
                    Some are unpredictable as they are governed by exchange rates.

                    > Additionally, some embassies will, on occasion, only accept payment
                          in postal orders when additional costs for poundage are then incurred.

            4.  Visa requirements vary depending on the reason for the visit,
                    the intended length of stay, the number of entries requested,
                    required or granted and the nationality of the applicant.
                    > For some countries requirements can vary further dependent on:~  
                          the accommodation arranged;  the travel route;  whether arriving by air,

                          sea or land;  on scheduled, chartered, hired, private or own transport;
                          which airport, sea-port, harbour, marina or land border is the intended 
                          arrival point;  the itinerary;  the onward destination;  and whether

                          travelling as crew;  or other than as a fare-paying passenger.
                          Information and evidence may also be required concerning the
                          country of birth, family origins, ethnicity, religion, employment, home
                          address, residency status, vocation, medical and other records of
                          the applicant and any family, companions, employees, carers, nurses,
                          security staff or other persons travelling with or accompanying them.

            5.  An embassy can vary their requirements for any individual application
                    at their discretion.

            6.  The availability, requirements and time in embassy for a visa application
                    in respect of a foreign national will depend on the entry status of
                    the applicant into the U.K.

            7.  Each embassy has its own criteria for information so do please ensure
                    that all of the questions are answered, the required documents
                    are enclosed and that both the form and the passport are signed.

            8.  Most countries require a passport valid for
not less than six months
                    beyond the intended stay.

            9.  Embassies that are able to, will usually oblige us by issuing a restricted
                    visa to accommodate a passport with short validity but many are
                    now not able to issue any visa unless the passport is valid for their
                    regulation minimum time.

          10.  Many embassies are unable to issue a visa unless there are two facing
                    blank pages available in the passport.

          11.  We are an accredited agent of Her Majesty's Passport Office and
                    well placed to provide solutions for unexpected emergencies.
If the need occurs we can also advise on the criteria and requirements
                          necessary to apply for a second passport and even a third or a fourth
                          passport etc. up to the maximum eight allowable.
                          Many of our clients have more than one passport.
                          > We can process routine or urgent passport applications, renewals,
                                name change on marriage, other name change, a photo change,
                                extension or other amendment as well as a child's first passport,
                                amendment, extension or renewal etc.

          12.  We have 24 hour telephone, fax and mobile contact numbers available
                    direct to our 24hr duty manager should they ever be needed in an
                    emergency or for any reason in connection with a job in progress.
