These are the terms and conditions between GulfVisa Ltd (“GulfVisa”) and an applicant (“Applicant”) is a person applying for a visa and/or stamping of documents and other supporting services.

GulfVisa has the right to refuse any request at its own discretion.
GulfVisa does not guarantee success of every application as only embassies and departments have the power to accept or refuse the applications. GulfVisa advise their applicant in good faith about the requirements of the embassy to secure the visa or stamp the document but GulfVisa cannot hold responsibility or liability in case of delay or rejection of the application.
Once GulfVisa receives the completed and correct documents for the service requested, GulfVisa will submit them to the relevant embassy or department in UK.
A payment must be included in advance to cover all the fees. Applications received without correct payment are considered incomplete and will not be submitted for processing.
Any change of fees, requirements and time on the day of submission must be accepted and met by the applicant. The applicant accepts any delay that is caused by an embassy or department without any responsibility or liability to GulfVisa.
