Crewe Hall-based, The Travel Visa Company is urging travellers to prepare well in advance before visiting Turkey, due to a change in the visa requirements that will come into effect from 10 April 2014.
The company, which boasts the title as the ‘preferred visa specialists’ for travel companies such as TUI, Thomas Cook and The Co-operative Travel Group, has already seen a surge in enquiries since the announcement of the changes earlier this year and is set to see an influx in application requests over the next six months.
Karen Taylor, co-founder of The Travel Visa Company, comments: “The introduction of the new Turkish visa is set to cause some confusion this year with both tourists and corporate travellers.
“It is extremely important that all travellers are made aware of the change before the date of travel as it will only result in extremely high fees to buy the visa at the airport. The visa process takes a couple of days and can be quite complicated, but our team of visa specialists here in Crewe, and in our Manchester office, can organise everything from payment to postage.
“Travellers must also be wary of online companies who are charging above the odds for the visas as they may not be a reputable supplier and have little knowledge of the visa industry. In some cases it can result in application forms being filled out incorrectly or visas not even received by the customer.”
The Travel Visa Company has a turnover of over £1.2 million and an unrivalled reputation of supplying effective and efficient visa applications to both business and tourist travellers.
It has 14 years experience of providing tourist visas and longstanding relationships with Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
Specialising in both tourist and business travel to India, China, Russia and Africa, the Travel Visa Company, founded by Karen Taylor and Ray Ward in 2005, currently employs 15 staff at its Cheshire head office in Crewe.
