Moreover, we offer useful information about the entry requirements for touristic visits for almost every country in the world. In addition, the customer can apply for one or more Electronic Travel Authorizations for one or several persons to travel to the same destination. However, it must be highlighted that the approval or denial of an Electronic Travel Authorization application is an exclusive competence of the Government.
Our professional Services, among others, consist of:

- In the event that travelers cannot find information about what requirements they need to travel to a certain country, we facilitate to them the “Visa Checker” section in most of the pages, which they can consult at any time to figure out what type of Electronic Travel Authorization is required or not to travel to the desired country according to their nationality and final destination. Please bear in mind that the Electronic Travel Authorization requirements vary by country and also depend on the nationality of the traveler, as well as the duration and purpose of the intended stay.

- Keep the Customer informed about the status of her/his Electronic Travel Authorization application, such as that it has already been submitted and/or if the Government has required more personal information and/or additional documentation in order to assess his/her application.
Processing times for an Electronic Travel Authorization application will be communicated via email once the application has been completed and submitted. They are based on processing times provided by the Government under normal circumstances.

Travel Health Certificate: a health declaration which some destination countries require the traveler to compulsorily complete before entering the country to prevent the spread of disease. The contact details and travel information provided can be used by the Governmental Authorities to track the health status of visitors.
This service can be also requested separately/individually on the homepage of our website, which means, it can be obtained even if the Electronic Travel Authorisation application has not been requested.
Travelers can make their health declaration electronically, before their trip or physically, upon arrival at the airport of the destination country. It is recommended that this is made in advance in order to speed up the process of going through the airport’s immigration controls.
Travelers who make their health declaration electronically receive a reference number and/or a code that they will be required to present on the airport’s immigration controls. This procedure can be carried out by the traveler on their own, but without the advantages that our assistance service offers.
Please note that having the Travel Health Certificate does not guarantee entry to the destination country, as the admission criteria are the exclusive competence of the Immigration Authorities.
Embassy registration: providing the Embassy your contact details and those of your trip is an optional procedure but it is usefulfor different purposes like helping the Embassy (i) to contact you in case of a family emergency, (ii) to send you information regarding safety conditions in your destination country, etc. This service is only for adults.
