The Al-Kharj Chamber of Commerce has signed a memorandum of understanding with VFS Global for the latter to provide visa services for its members on its premises.
Leveraging its doorstep visa service, VFS Global will visit the chamber’s headquarters in Al-Kharj upon request to provide end-to-end visa services to members, bringing the process to them so they do not have to visit a visa application center. VFS Global’s range of optional services such as form filling assistance, travel insurance, document scanning and uploading (for UK visa applications), among others, will also be available to members.
“This partnership with VFS Global is an accelerant to positioning Al-Kharj as an epicenter for trade, industry and businesses by bringing visa services closer and at further convenience to our members. We look forward to working closely with VFS Global in the coming months,” said Amash bin Al-Dafin, president, Al-Kharj Chamber of Commerce.
