In a bid to woo more investors, Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the flagship free zone of Dubai and trade and logistics hub for the wider Middle East region, is all set for a system overhaul. Making visa
procurement an easy task is part of this refurbishing plan and Jafza
is looking forward to achieve it
by joining hands with a private service provider V-Assist.
Convenience of easy visas is of utmost importance as in recent years the trade figures have increased as has the frequency of business travel.
The free zone whose operating profit had reached AED1.18 billion in 2014, is working towards assisting the frequent overseas business travel of its member companies, in conjunction with V-Assist. V-Assist, a renowned visa assistance service provider, has launched its services for individuals and corporates based in Jafza.
V-Assist will offer a one-stop
solution to all visa assistance and travel needs of individuals as well as corporates.
“Travel requires a lot of planning and visa processing can turn out to be one of the most arduous tasks if there is ambiguity at any step of the process. Our customers are constantly travelling either for business or pleasure and I am confident that our V-Assist services will offer them the convenience and direction in the entire visa
application process,” Ibrahim Mohammed Aljanahi, Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer of Jafza.
