Travisa Outsourcing and Your Visa to India
A few countries use visa management companies to assist them in coordinating the visa application process. India is one of these. India employs Travisa Outsourcing as the middleman to collect and return all passport and visas. If you’re looking to visit India, your passport will pass through their hands.
However, Travisa Outsourcing is not a visa service company, the way Passport Visas Express.com is. It is the agency who has been tasked with the role of courier by the Indian government. Applications are collected at the Travisa Outsourcing office and then courier to the Embassy for processing. Once the visas are completed they are picked up by Travisa Outsourcing and can be collected by you (or us!).
The bottom line: Travisa Outsourcing is the middleman that all persons seeking India visas must pass through.
What does this mean for you?
Travisa is in charge of collecting visa applications from applicants, passing them on to the India Embassy for processing, and then returning the passport (hopefully with visa) to the applicant. The idea is to streamline the visa application process but the method has its own difficulties, not to mention an added charge to the applicant.
Since Travisa Outsourcing is not a visa service it does not provide customer service. Therefore, it does not provide the following:
Travisa Outsourcing does not review applications to insure they are correctly completed and that the appropriate documents have been submitted.
If an application is incorrectly completed or there are problems with the supporting documents, the application is returned to the applicant and the consular fees are not refunded. Keep in mind consular fees for US passport holders start at $76.
