Ensuring Smooth Travel for Delegates
Managing Director, La Vacanza
Processing of Visas, especially for a large group, is the biggest challenge. Guiding every participant about the right documentation is another challenge as delegates come from diverse educational and geographical backgrounds and many of them are first-time travellers.
DUBAI For Dubai, an eVisa is issued and a Hotel/DMC takes responsibility to update the airline with the PNR of the respective delegate to put an ‘ok to board’ message which allows them to take the flight from India for Dubai. It is necessary to carry a print of the visa.
THAILAND For Thailand, Indian travellers can either apply and get the visa before their travel or simply fly to Thailand and secure the visa-on arrival at the airport. Delegates need to ensure they have valid passports, and abide by the immigration rule of carrying enough money in cash. Visa application and processing takes about 15 minutes but saves the organisers from logistical problems.
CANADA For Canada, delegates must ensure that they carry right documents as specified from the embassy, which gives enough time to the agency to coordinate with the embassy for their decision.
For Thailand, Indian delegates can either get the visa before their travel or fly to Thailand and secure the visa-on arrival at the airport
