VFS Global Announces Extended Working Hours During Ramadan
Updated on 08 May 2019

It is a no brainer that June to September are peak travel months and VFS Global centres, where we go with our visa applications, start to get busier than usual.

In a recent update, VFS Global has announced extended Ramadan timings for popular tourist destinations for the convenience of visa applicants.

Some of the countries include the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, Greece, Switzerland, France, Cyprus, Germany and more.

In addition, visa applicants can also avail a special offer of 10 per cent discount and complimentary SMS notification and passport delivery service on every application for doorstep visa services.

Applicants can apply for a visa from a location of their choice, be it home, office, or even the school campus. The service allows the flexibility of enrolling biometrics while submitting visa applications together on the same date and from a location most convenient to the applicants.  The service is available for visa applicants travelling to UK, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Finland, Latvia, Hungary, Portugal, South Africa, Singapore, Turkey and Cyprus.
