BLS International reopens Spain Visa Application Centres in Russia
India, 2021: BSE and NSE listed (BSE: 540073; NSE: BLS), BLS International, a trusted global tech-enabled services partner for governments and citizens, announced today that it has resumed operations of its Spain Visa Application Centres (VACs) in Russia.
The company has resumed accepting visa applications for Spain from two centres in Russia – Moscow and St. Petersburg. In the post pandemic scenario, with an effort to minimise physical interaction at the VACs, applicants can book for any of the values-added service such as Premium lounge wherein only single applicant is entertained at one point of time or Mobile Biometric service, where the applicant can submit the application from the safety of his home / office or applicants can also request their passports be couriered instead of coming to the VAC to collect it. Primetime Submission is also a solution that aims at ease of application submission wherein a separate counter at the centre accepts application during work hours to avoid the queues, which eliminates unnecessary waiting time and contact with other individuals while queueing up for application submission.
Commenting on the development, Mr. Shikhar Aggarwal, Joint Managing Director, BLS International said, “Being the trusted partner to the Spanish MOFA globally for more than four years now, BLS continues to build on its robust expertise in the field of visa outsourcing and is committed to provide high-quality services coupled with highest customer satisfaction. Furthermore, the amenities at the centre illustrate our commitment to efficient, faster and secure operations along with strict health & safety measures and Covid protocols to facilitate safe travel to Spain.”
BLS Centres in Russia are centrally located and have well trained staff while there is a dedicated helpline and e-mail support services along with website to resolve applicants’ queries. These centres are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and have the capability to service other Schengen countries jointly with prior approval from Spanish Mission.
