What excited me about founding Help with my visa! was being able to create something that, taken together, is more valuable than the sum of its parts.
Business doesn’t need to be transactional or zero-sum, it can (and should!) be collaborative and long-lasting.
It reminded me of this African proverb:
So I’m following that command to “go together” by announcing four new partnerships we’ve recently set up.
First, I’m extremely pleased to welcome two new visa services companies to Help with my visa, including our first partnership overseas.
VAS Contact became our first overseas seller and launched with us at the end of June.
Based in Baku, Azerbaijan, VAS Contact is a professional visa services company run by Elchin Abdullayev, a former Zone Manager at TLScontact responsible for running the UK and France visa application centres in the Caucuses.
Elchin’s built an extremely professional and competent team in Baku and is offering what I believe is the first-of-its-kind visa service in Azerbaijan.
It’s a pleasure to welcome VAS Contact to the Help with my visa! marketplace and I look forward to deepening our relationship as travel restrictions continue to ease between Azerbaijan and the UK.
With a 4.6* rating on Trustpilot, ISP is an immigration adviser accredited and regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) to handle casework up to Level 1, which covers the majority of visa applications made in the UK.
With ISP onboard we can now offer immigration advice services in four more languages, covering Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu, as well as English.
In addition to these two exciting new sellers joining the Help with my visa! marketplace, I’m elated to announce that we’ve also signed our first two affiliate deals to offer additional services to our customers.
Smart Currency Exchange specialises in large overseas money transfers and is the perfect solution for people like students, those moving to another country and people who want to make high-value investments overseas to start businesses or buy new homes.
Smart Currency Exchange has amassed over 1000 5* reviews on Trustpilot and has helped people transfer more than £5 billion around the world since 2007.
Whether you’re in the UK and need to use the train to travel to a UKVCAS service point or are visiting the UK from overseas and want to see more of the country, you can simply and securely buy train tickets to get you there using the Trainline website and mobile app.
With these partnerships in place we can better serve our customers for all their travel and immigration needs.
Because applying for a visa isn’t about getting a nice sticker in your passport or a shiny new identity card.
It’s just one of a number of things that let you take that trip to a new foreign land, to access the world’s best education as an international student or to live with your family in a different country.
So by working together with these partners, we can help you go that little bit further together with us.
