VFS Global expands Czech Republic visa service to Saudi Arabia

RIYADH, November 9, 2015

VFS Global, a leading outsourcing and technology services specialist, has launched a new visa application centre for the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Applicants for visas to the Czech Republic from the kingdom can now visit the centrally-located centre to submit visa applications and enrol for biometrics.

The centre is located at the Schengen Visa Application Centre in Dove Plaza (Hyper Panda).

Another Czech Republic visa application centre is scheduled to be launched on November 18 in Jeddah for greater convenience for applicants in Saudi Arabia. This centre will be located at TasHeel Commercial Plaza.

Jiri Slavik, ambassador of the Czech Republic to Saudi Arabia, said: “Opening of Czech Visa Centers in Riyadh and Jeddah reflects the growing bilateral relations between the Czech Republic and Saudi Arabia, and comes in the year when the two countries celebrate 20 years of diplomatic ties.”

“By visa outsourcing the Czech Republic aims at becoming more accessible to all applicants, including those travelling to visit our spas, be it for medical treatment or wellness stays only, to experience the atmosphere of our beautiful cities, castles and palaces, to play golf or to learn filming in a summer school. And of course, we believe that better accessibility of visa centres will also please future businessmen and investors interested in the numerous opportunities the strategically located Czech Republic has to offer. We are convinced that VFS Global, one of the most experienced and professional companies in the visa field, will prove itself our reliable partner,” Slavik said

Ajit Alexander, COO – Middle East and North Africa, VFS Global, added: “We are committed to streamlining the visa application process for travellers and providing best-in-class services for visitors to our centres. We are privileged to partner with the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Saudi Arabia and are confident our services will enhance the overall experience for applicants.”

  • Convenient and centrally-accessed location;
