Building on a long-standing relationship of nearly 14 years, the Government of Italy has recently re-awarded visa processing services contracts to VFS Global in Cameroon, Ghana and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for another four years.
Additionally, VFS Global was recently awarded a 3-year contract to provide proficiently managed Italy visa services to the residents of Libya after participating in an official tender published by the Embassy of Italy in Libya.
As further reinforcement to VFS Global's position as a reliable and trusted market leader in the consular services domain, the Embassies of Italy in Ghana and Egypt have also awarded contracts for Legalisation Services to VFS Global for 4 and 3-year periods respectively.
