DO YOU REALLY NEED TO PAY A TRAVEL AGENT OR NOT? FIND OUT WHERE YOU BELONG!

Sometimes you don’t need to pay a travel agent to assist you in processing your visa application because visa issuing is solely at the discretion of the consular (or visa officer).

However, the experience and kind of genuine services render by the travel agents or agencies can facilitate the success of your visa application.

Frankly speaking, you do not need to pay a travel agent if you possess the following:

  1. Experience and time
  2. Financial Travel Capacity

Experience and Time

It is very important that you understand the visa requirements; and prepare your visa supporting documents to justify the requirements before submitting your visa application to the embassy.

If you have the knowledge and time to get this done plus the financial travel capacity to demonstrate, you may not need the service of any travel agent.

Financial Travel Capacity

This is the most crucial visa requirement. Your knowledge about visa processing is not enough if you don’t have the financial travel capacity to demonstrate at the embassy.

You can learn more about the importance of Financial Travel Capacity in our previous post titled “MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VISA PROCESSING” or read below.

In conclusion, if you do not meet the two aforementioned requirements you will definitely need the service of a genuine travel agent or agency.

Therefore, you must be satisfied that the travel agency can provide you the above two services before you patronise.

You must also have in mind that only very few travel agencies in Nigeria can provide you financial travel assistance as many do not have the financial capacity or buoyant enough to assist you financially.

 AN EXPERIENCE FROM A RECENT CANADA CLIENT –  BALOGUN

BALOGUN CANADA VISA ADVERT

 

I am Balogun from Lagos. I contacted GVC about few months ago for their financial travel assistance and reliable visa experience to complete my Canada Study and Work Visa Application.

I already obtained my admission letter from another travel agent. But the agent advised me to contact GVC for the aforementioned services to have a better chance of getting my visa which I did.

I received all the necessary supports within just two (2) days. The staff were amazing and got valuable experience in dealing with similar issues. Even though, they were not the visa officer to determine the outcome of my visa application, they gave me the confidence to go ahead and hope for the best.

I got my four (4) years Canada Study & Work Visa with their assistance.

I will never forget your travel company because you gave me hope- despite the fact that I did not pay a tuition fee to the school.

Big thanks to everyone in GVC.

MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VISA PROCESSING!

Evidence of Financial Capacity is the most crucial visa requirement. Experience have proved that evidence of sufficient funds and reliable supporting travel documents increases the success of visa applications.

Since it is no longer news that visa issuing is solely at the discretion of the visa officer (consular), therefore it is important that your visa application convince the visa officer.

What visa officer/consular is looking for before issuing a visa?

Strong ties to convince them that you will leave their country after your intended stay.

How do you demonstrate your strong ties to your home country?

Evidence of financial capacity is the most crucial requirement here. It must be demonstrated to satisfy your job type and position. It should be in your personal bank account.  It will increase the success of your visa application up to 85%.

For unemployed graduate or low-income employee (especially for study purposes), proof of fund such as scholarship/study grant/sponsor letter should be included.

In the case of undergraduate or under age, sufficient fund must be available in your sponsor’s bank account. The closing balance should be atleast 3 times greater than what you need for your study visa application.

Other proof of strong ties include; marriage certificate (if married) and property. These are optional requirements.

NB: Evidence of financial capacity (your bank statement) must be genuine because this document is subject to verification. 

When dealing with a travel agent, please ask questions about this to avoid fake agents landing you in trouble. Most of them can’t assist you financially. Any travel agent that is not financially buoyant with years of experience can’t offer you the best travel services you need.

Advantages of genuine financial capacity in visa processing if properly demonstrated:

  • It increases the chance of getting a visa up to 85%.
  • Travel history may not be necessary if evidence of financial capacity is strong enough.
  • It helps you to avoid travel ban.
  • It gives you confidence and peace of mind especially during your visa processing at the embassy.

Finally, since visa issuing is at the discretion of the visa officer (consular) please try to know the refusal policy of the travel agency before committing yourself. Most reliable travel agencies must have refusal policy for their clients at no extra service fee.
