In a bid to raise service levels, the Embassy of Sweden in Abu Dhabi has outsourced its visa application process to VFS Global.
Those wanting to apply for Schengen visas to Sweden can now do this at two new centres managed by VFS Global – one in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai.
While VFS Global will accept visa applications, the Embassy will continue to make the assessment and decisions regarding all visas. The new Visa application centres are located at Wafi Mall, Level 2 in Dubai and Shining Tower, Level 25, in Abu Dhabi.
Ajit Alexander, COO Middle East and Africa, VFS Global said the company was “committed to delivering a professional and high-quality service to all applicants and travel agents in the UAE”.
The Centre in Dubai will accept applications for visas to Sweden from applicants and travel agents residing in the UAE.
The Centre will remain open from 0900hrs to 1700hrs for enhanced convenience to applicants and travel agents.
VFS Global started operations for the Government of Sweden in 2008, and now serves clients in 23 countries from 58 visa application centres globally.
