The Embassy of the Czech Republic and VFS Global have launched a Czech Republic Visa Application Centre (VAC) in Pune in the Viman Nagar area, stated a release. The centre is a part of the modern Joint Visa Application Centre that houses 26 diplomatic missions under one roof. The centre was inaugurated by Milan Hovorka, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to India, at a ceremony last week. The inauguration was also attended by other key members from the Embassy and VFS Global.

Over the last few months, VFS Global has set up centres in 11 other cities in India to increase accessibility to visa services for applicants across the country. Earlier this month, Czech Republic VACs were launched in Jaipur and Kochi, respectively. Applicants earlier had to travel to either Mumbai or Delhi to apply for Czech Republic visas.

Speaking at the launch, the Ambassador said he cherished inaugurating such a centre, in yet another major city in India, where people can submit their Schengen visa applications for travel to the Czech Republic by visiting
VFS Global centres.

Vinay Malhotra, COO – Middle East and South Asia, VFS Global, "We are pleased to further enhance the visa services network for the Czech Republic in India, through this modern visa application facility in Pune. The new centre will serve the ever-increasing volumes of visa applications for the Schengen country, and illustrates the emerging popularity of the Czech Republic as a tourist destination. We are confident that the introduction of professional and hassle-free Czech Republic visa services in Pune will be well-received by aspiring travellers from this city.”

VFS Global first set up visa application operations for the Czech Republic in 2008, in Russia, and has since established a network of around 85 centres for this client government across 18 countries, and will be launching more centres in due course.
