Online Visa Application Platform VisaHQ Experiences Rapid International Expansion
The Business Travel Show -- London, UK February 21st 2018 -- VisaHQ, the leading online platform for travel visa and passport applications, today announced details regarding its recent growth and expansion on a global scale.
Anyone who has traveled internationally knows that obtaining a travel visa is often a long and frustrating process. VisaHQ merges the skill of its expert team with an innovative AI-powered online solution, eliminating time-consuming repetitive tasks, which tend to be part of applying for travel documents. Visa obtention is free from hassles with VisaHQ; the company ensures that travel documents will arrive on-time, every time, and without error. This will permanently stamp out expensive rescheduling fees.
Fueled by a growing global demand for travel visas, VisaHQ is reporting continued expansion in-line with healthy industry figures.
Last October, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) released its industry performance statistics for 2016. These show that airlines carried 3.8 billion passengers on scheduled services over the course of the year, an increase of 7% over 2015’s figure. While airlines in the Asia-Pacific region carried the largest number of passengers, the report states that U.S. citizens are the world’s most frequent travelers, comprising 21% of all passengers worldwide in 2016.
“If the demand for visas is any measure of international mobility whatsoever, our success reflects this trend,” said VisaHQ President Oleg Naydonov.
To better serve its global customer base, the company hired 30 new employees in multiple departments, including sales, R&D, and visa services, over the last 12 months. These additions bring the company’s staff count to 150 worldwide.
Spurred by growth in Asia-Pacific nations, the online visa and passport company last year opened new offices in Australia, China, and Singapore, as well as second offices in Montreal, Canada and in Ireland. With these additions, VisaHQ has 24 offices in 12 countries and is available to over 3.5 billion people worldwide.
“We are proud to say that VisaHQ has been bootstrapped from its inception,” added Naydonov. “We are ROI focused, which has convinced us now is the perfect time to increase our marketing and sales activities globally with the addition of Stan Berteloot to our management team”.
Stan Berteloot joined VisaHQ in January as VP of Global Growth to lead sales and marketing operations. Prior to VisaHQ, Stan had served as marketing director of KDS (now part of American Express Global Business Travel) for 14 years.
VisaHQ has also seen a substantial boost in sales thanks to its growing ecosystem. Travel Management Companies (TMC), such as World Travel in the U.S. are pleased to provide their customers with convenient access to automated online visa applications.
The company is also proud to have been a 2017 Concur App Partner of the Year. SAP Concur is the leading global provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions, and its customers are now able to take advantage of seamless integration with VisaHQ’s platform. The relationship between Concur and VisaHQ means that visa obtention is now part of the booking process, rather than an extra step.
