Denmark and VFS Global opens first visa application center in Kuwait
February 2, 2019, 12:30 pm
Denmark embassy, in partnership with VFS Global, the world’s largest outsourcing and technology services specialist for diplomatic missions worldwide, has announced the opening of its Visa Application Center in Kuwait City on 31 January.

Applicants will no longer need to visit the Embassy of Denmark; instead, they can conveniently submit their visa applications with ease at the VFS Global center in Kuwait City. The new center has started accepting visa applications for Denmark from residents of Kuwait.

During the official inauguration, Ambassador of Denmark to Kuwait H.E. Ole Emil Moesby commented: “The Visa Application Centre in Kuwait City will facilitate much easier visa application procedures for anyone living in Kuwait who needs a Schengen visa to visit Denmark. Previously, applicants had to travel to Danish missions elsewhere in the region to apply for a visa, which made travel to Denmark somewhat cumbersome, expensive and time-consuming.”

“More recently, we’ve noticed that it is not just Denmark that tourists are looking to explore. There has also been a steady increase in tourists interested in visiting Iceland, which is another great travel destination within easy reach of Denmark,” He added.

He said, “It is our aim to provide a hassle-free service to applicants, and with the launch of the new Visa Application Centre in Kuwait City, this is making the travel aspirations of tourists, business travelers, and anyone looking to visit family members in Denmark or Iceland, a reality.”

Commenting on the launch of the new Visa Application Center, Vinay Malhotra, Regional Group COO – Middle East, South Asia & P.R. China, VFS Global, said: “Denmark is an attractive destination for tourists which has been illustrated through the dynamic growth in the number of people seeking to travel. As a hub for global trade and tourism, Denmark has many drawcards for tourists and business travellers alike and we are pleased to add this great location to our ever-growing list of destinations in Kuwait.”

He added, “As a preferred outsourced visa-processing provider to governments across the world, we are proud to build on this legacy and will continue to provide convenient services, which open up more of the world to our valued customers.”

VFS Global has been associated with the Client Government of Denmark since 2008 and presently serves applicants through a vast network of 114 Visa Application Centres across 40 countries such as Australia, Canada, Ecuador, India, New Zealand, Russia and the United Arab Emirates, amongst others.
