Service charges allow for up to two consular visits per application. Certain applications require further visits beyond our culpability. Such extra visits will be charged at 50% of the '1st traveller' rate for the first application and at 12.5% of the '1st traveller' rate for each subsequent application made at the same time. Waiting time, if applicable, is charged at 100%. Extra visits requested by the client will each be charged at 100%.
Orders cancelled before lodgement has taken place are subject to a cancellation charge. Passport Office, Official and Embassy fees are extra and charged at cost, VAT zero rated. Amounts not paid with order are subject to an account charge of 5%, VAT exempt.
These are just some of the facilities in our support service infrastructure that ensure our ability to perform whenever a possibility exists.

Our aim is to provide the best possible Personal Service to complement and enhance the efficiency and speed of our Consular Services which consistently have the highest success rate amongst all of our competitors for first time acceptance of applications on first lodgement.
We have sent a copy of the above statement to all known competitors. Not one reply or comment has been received that contests our claim.
This record achievement (corroborated by results which are updated daily) is maintained because each application is checked for minimum requirements before submission. This is the basis of us achieving almost 100% successful acceptances at first attempt.
Time is actually budgeted in order to allow for a skilled inspection of all the important sections of the application that are troublesome and which are known to be problematic if either the content or the way it is presented are not both exactly as required,

Supplements apply at certain embassies
Reducing supplement is to allow for the additional administration involved due to the pre-arranging, pre-notification, pre-preparation and/or special presentation that is required by certain embassies. As we are able to pass on the benefit of savings made when processing additional applications at the same time, the supplement reduces in order to provide the same discounts (25%, 50% or 75% off, etc.) that we normally give to each additional traveller.
Fixed supplement is applied when each application incurs the same additional costs.
Single supplement is activated when, due to the intensive pre-administration required or the inevitable waiting time expected, it would not be economic to process a single application. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not stockpile applications for economic or for volume processing. We lodge each and every application at the first opportunity once all the requirements are met, even if it means visiting an embassy or a consular authority to submit only one application.
Off-route supplement is only applicable if the relevant consular or government office is outside central London or significantly off our normal routes. The supplement will allow for the two journeys to both submit the application/s and collect the processed documents. Unlike most of our competitors, we do not charge more for each application or submission. We charge only the one supplement per batch of applications or documents that are being submitted and collected at the same time.
Miscellaneous supplement may apply only temporarily at an individual embassy or it may be relevant only to a specific classification of visa or it may be due to a peculiarity at a particular embassy. If it is because we are required to pay for consular fees on an additional separate visit or at a different office building or at a bank or a post office the supplement will be charged at 50% of the '1st traveller' rate for the first application and at 6.25% of the '1st traveller' rate for each subsequent application that is dealt with at the same time.
Waiting Time supplement is a one-off set-charge to cover the appropriate contingency arrangements needed to prepare for and make due allowance for the unpredictable waiting time that will inevitably be incurred due to the excessive queues that prevail at certain embassies. The supplement will allow for the waiting time anticipated on the two consular visits to both lodge the application/s and collect the processed documents.
Unlike most of our competitors, we do not require each traveller to pay more. We charge only the one supplement per embassy, irrespective of the total number of applications that are being made and submitted at the same time. We do not charge more for every application, each traveller or per passport.
The waiting time at a particular embassy can vary due to their busy, peak or seasonal periods. Refer to your destination country to see if a supplement or a discount is currently applicable.
Refer to your destination country to see if a supplement or a discount is currently applicable.

6. Once an order is received, a Job No. is generated for reference and tracking purposes. It is most important that this Job No. is quoted on every communication and especially when you are SENDING DOCUMENTS to us. For fast-track attention it is best to also quote the Job No. at the bottom left corner of the envelope.
Failure to quote the Job No. WILL CAUSE DELAY and may also result in double job processing caused by the creation of a duplicate file with a different Job No. (very dangerous) and charging twice in error, which will in turn incur extra costs.
Also, when you make a telephone enquiry, we will be able to update you quicker if the Job No. can be mentioned if we need to ask for it.
7. Please enclose a self-addressed envelope.
This eliminates any misreading of individual addresses and any confusion as to whether the completed documents are to be returned direct to the traveller or to the travel agent or to the company address.
The envelope does not have to be stamped or postage paid and it needs to be only large enough for the return of your passport/s.
The Post Office and Royal Mail prefer a size C5 envelope.
Please retain and do not send passport wallets Embassies do not like them and there is a risk of loss

9. Orders that are sent to us direct from your client, contractor, employee or the traveller should be clearly noted that they are to be charged to your account facility so as to avoid any delay that involves payment.
10. Make all payments to "Visa World" and not to an embassy. They will not accept your payment.
11. If you are not using our order form, please enclose a separate note with your contact name, address, telephone number and email address, which method of return dispatch you require (e.g. by Royal Mail Special Delivery Next Day) and of course, the dispatch address. If you are a travel agent, please ensure that your branch is clearly marked.
12. If you will require in-depth information or advice when telephoning, we do hope you will understand that we can only provide this after receipt of a deposit to confirm that it is your intention to place an order with us. If we cannot process your application, your deposit will be returned in full and no charge will be made.
