CKGS opens visa application centres across India
Cox & Kings Global Services (CKGS) has begun processing Schengen Visa and Residence Permit applications on behalf of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in India.
Under the agreement, CKGS has opened visa application centres across India in major cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Pune, and Kochi.
CKGS will provide services such as disseminating visa and residence permit related information approved by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in India, as well as pre-scrutiny of documents and acceptance of visa applications and passports from the general public.
Ann Ollestad, Norwegian Ambassador to India, said; ” The number of Indian tourists arriving in Norway has been on steady incline and our partnership with CKGS at this juncture is bound to make it easier and convenient for Indian nationals to acquire a Schengen Visa or a residence permit making it possible for the diplomatic staff to focus primarily on case handling, thus shortening the overall processing time and the application procedure; which in turn will improve the experience of the applicants”.
