The BKC VAC is a huge facility that spans more than 36000 square feet and includes 62 customer desks, air-conditioned waiting areas, and optional services such as premium lounges and courier services for discerning customers.
Pranav Sinha, Head South Asia, VFS Global, said;
“With the reopening of the BKC visa application centre in Mumbai, we want to ensure an enhanced visa experience for our customers. With more countries easing travel restrictions and resumption of regular international flights operations from India, we expect an increase in overseas travel this year, particularly from India.”
“We also have some optional premium services such as Visa at Your Doorstep (VAYD) for customers who prefer personalised assistance such as completing the entire visa application process from a location of their choice”
