The way the MICE seg­ment has grown, there are a few key points that should be kept in mind re­gard­ing group visa:

AP­PLY IN AD­VANCE Visa ap­pli­ca­tions for MICE groups should be ap­plied well in ad­vance to the Em­bassy/Con­sulate through a pre­sen­ta­tion or a mail shar­ing the de­tailed itin­er­ary and the rea­son of choos­ing the re­spec­tive coun­try as a MICE des­ti­na­tion.

In cer­tain coun­tries, such as Switzer­land and Nether­lands, a pre­sen­ta­tion by the Spon­sor, Visa Fa­cil­i­ta­tor and Tour Op­er­a­tor is manda­tory.

PRIOR IN­FOR­MA­TION VIA PRE­SEN­TA­TION Pro­vid­ing prior in­for­ma­tion of the MICE group to the Em­bassy/Con­sulate through a pre­sen­ta­tion or an email is im­per­a­tive: It helps them to plan things ac­cord­ingly. As these are com­pany-spon­sored trips, most of the Em­bassies/Con­sulates give a waiver for in­di­vid­ual fi­nan­cial documents. You get a sep­a­rate slot for sub­mis­sion of MICE visa ap­pli­ca­tions. Some­times the Em­bassy/Con­sulate gives ap­proval to sub­mit all ap­pli­ca­tions at one lo­ca­tion.
