Delay in Visa Processing
It is worth noting that obtaining a Visa for the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and most European nations may take substantially longer.
The situation comes, as most countries have lifted the Covid-related travel restrictions and resumption of scheduled international flights, and many Indian travellers are gearing up to travel abroad.
According to a VFS Global official;
“There has been an unprecedented uptick in outbound travel demand from India to many parts of the world this summer. Given the extremely high pent-up demand, this was expected with the opening of international borders, easing of travel restrictions and resumption of regular international flights from India in March 2022.”
The VFS Global receives around 20,000 visa applications per day from India, comparable to the level seen during the pre-pandemic peak season.
