Deloitte’s view

The introduction of electronic visa application services aims to have a positive impact on the application timelines and should make this process more efficient, less time-consuming, and reduce costs. Employers, foreign nationals, and residents should take this new process into consideration since manual applications will no longer be accepted and applications must be submitted online. Considering this is a new process, we will be monitoring for any further information and keep you updated on any developments.
