CIBTvisas provides tour operators with the ability to process large travel visa and passport requests for all travellers embarking on a given travel tour. CIBTvisas can help major tour operators ensure that their guests are ready for travel by informing travellers of the necessary entry requirements for each country that they visit during their tour. CIBTvisas provides fast, easy, and secure processing of travel visas, passports, and legalizations to ensure that groups of all sizes are ready to travel in time for their tour departure date.
CIBTvisas’s Unique Services For Tour Operators Include:
CIBTvisas Application Packs. CIBTvisas creates and distributes country specific CIBTvisas Application Packs for tour operators to provide their travellers with the necessary entry requirements for each country they plan to visit.
Travellers are often unfamiliar with visa requirements and processing procedures when preparing to travel abroad. Travellers who may not have applied for visas in the past can easily follow the simple steps outlined in the CIBTvisas Application Pack. Designed in an easy to read format, it is an efficient method of delivering visa requirements to tour participants. The CIBTvisas Application Pack includes all visa applications, requirements, processing times, and useful information specific to a travel tour’s destination.
The CIBTvisas Application Pack can be tailored to cover multiple countries on the tour itinerary. CIBTvisas can also customise the pack with your tour operator logo to offer you an additional opportunity for branding.
CIBTvisas provides discounted rates to tour operators using the CIBTvisas Application Pack and can also provide commission at your request. Other payment options include building the cost of the visa in to the total tour cost and providing the visa service as “Inclusive” or as partial payment of fees by the tour operator. The tour operators can sell the traveller this service at point of sale to maximize commissions and to ensure all travellers obtain their visas in time for departure.
