In a move that will ease the visa application process for potential travellers from the surrounding regions of Delhi/NCR, the Embassy of the Czech Republic and VFS Global have opened a Visa Application Centre in Gurugram. Recently visa application centres were also opened for the Czech Republic in Chandigarh and Jalandhar. The new centre in Gurugram is well located in the heart of the city, and will manage the increasing volumes of visa applications from North of India for travel to the Czech Republic.

H.E. Milan Hovorka, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to India, said, “The Gurugram centre marks the launch of another important location within Delhi & NCR where people can submit their Schengen visa applications for travel to the Czech Republic via VFS Global. We thus continue to deliver on our promises. This is not the end of our endeavours, as we will soon announce the opening of additional Czech Visa Application Centres in the market.”

Since VFS Global first launched visa application centres for the Czech Republic in India around two years ago, the company has opened centres across several cities in the country, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Puducherry, Thiruvananthapuram, Pune, Jalandhar and Chandigarh. The newest centre in Gurugram highlights the destination’s growing popularity among Indian travel enthusiasts.

Commenting on the launch of the visa centre, Vinay Malhotra, Chief Operating Officer – Middle East and South Asia, VFS Global, said, “It is our privilege to be the trusted partner of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in India. The extension of our association with this esteemed client across the region reflects their faith in our ability to provide services to enhance the visa application experience for travellers. In view of the increase in travel to the Czech Republic, we are confident our efforts will make the travel experience seamless and smooth.”

In addition to visa services, VFS Global was selected as the official representative of the Czech Tourist Authority – Czech Tourism, in India, in November 2016, and works closely with various stakeholders and the Indian travel fraternity to make the Czech Republic the preferred holiday destination among Indian travellers.

VFS Global first partnered with the Czech Republic in 2008, when it set up visa application operations in Russia. Since then, it has established a robust network of 93 centres for this client government across 17 countries.

Key features of the centre include:

• Convenient and central location

• Skilled staff well-versed with the local language to handle applications and queries

• Dedicated website for easy access to information including visa categories, requirements, checklist, applicable fees, visa status update

• 100% secure handling of passports, documents and personal information
