Cox & Kings Global Services (CKGS) has opened a Vietnam Visa Application Centre (VAC) in Kolkata. The Embassy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in India has authorised CKGS to accept visa applications at their centre with effect from February 1, 2015, as per a release.

The Centre was inaugurated yesterday by His Excellency Ton Sinh Thanh, Ambassador in India for the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, in the presence of Arup Sen, Director, CKGS, and other senior officials.

CKGS is the only authorised visa service provider for Vietnam in West Bengal.

Sinh Thanh said, “Facilitation of visa service is one of the priorities of the Embassy. Through the Visa Application Centre in Kolkata, I strongly believe that Indian travellers from West Bengal will find a faster and reliable way to obtain visa to visit our beautiful and friendly country.”

The VAC will process tourist visa applications for residents of West Bengal and applicants would have to visit the Centre to submit their applications and collect them once the visa has been issued. The whole process will take approximately five working days. The tourist visa is valid for one month and is for single entry.

Commenting on the partnership, Sen said, “We are privileged to partner with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam to open a VAC in Kolkata to serve the people of West Bengal and we will smoothen the process to encourage more people to travel to the country."
