VFS Global supports 282 Special Olympics Bharat athletes with seamless Germany doorstep visa service: VFS Global, the world’s largest outsourcing and technology services specialist for governments and diplomatic missions, has assisted a delegation of 282 athletes and coaches from the Special Olympics Bharat with seamless Germany visa application submission.
The three-day Visa At Your Doorstep camp organised by VFS Global at the campus of Amity University, Noida, was aimed at helping these athletes with intellectual disabilities in representing India at the Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023, scheduled to be held from 17 to 25 June 2023.
To ensure that all the 282 athletes and coaches complete their visa application submission on time, VFS Global organised mobile biometric kits and team and the staff worked 20 hours a day for three days.
“We are overwhelmed by the dedicated service rendered by VFS Global officials at the Special Olympics Bharat sports camp held recently in preparation of the Berlin games. The time and patience with which they ensured that all the delegates’ visa process was completed is unprecedented and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to them. We feel proud to have esteemed institutions such as VFS Global in joining us in our endeavours of promoting inclusion of persons with Intellectual Disabilities,” said Dr. Mallika Nadda, Chairperson, Special Olympics Bharat.
