Applying for a visa or passport can be a long and confusing process. Application processes are unique to each country, and requirements can change at a moment’s notice—such as the recent mutual suspension of visa services between the U.S. and Turkey. It’s no wonder a recent study found that 85% of corporate travelers have a poor or mediocre experience when obtaining a visa. More than just a painful chore for travelers, if done incorrectly, applying for travel documents can also result in delayed or missed trips, additional cost, or damage to a company’s business and bottom line. And with 58% of the current population requiring a visa to travel internationally, it’s an area of managed travel that shouldn’t be neglected.
Luckily, VisaHQ, a valued Concur App Center partner, integrates directly with Concur Travel to enable Concur clients to easily obtain visas, passports, and other required documents for international business travel.
Automation helps reduce errors, rejections and delays in the process, while having a single controlled environment for applications provides added visibility into spend and traveler data. Designed with the busy corporate traveler in mind, VisaHQ’s technology gets the job done, with more than 99.91% of applications approved on the initial submission. VisaHQ has assisted more than 500,000 business travelers requiring visa or passport services for 112 countries.
