Visa Service Desk assists companies and private travellers with applying for a visa, or legalisation. We assist our clients by taking care of both the administrative part of an application and the relevant procedure at an embassy or consulate. For this service we charge a fee. We are not part of the government or affiliated with them. All fees for your application are visible and transparant when you place your order on our website. You also have the option to submit your application directly to the relevant government entity yourself. When you place an order on our website we will never charge you a higher fee than the fee charged by the embassy or consulate.
