Travisa Outsourcing provides visa and passport processing services to foreign governments. Travisa Outsourcing is an affiliate of Travisa Visa Services, a visa and passport expediting service that has been in business since 1981. Travisa Outsourcing was established in 2007 in response to growing demand for visa outsourcing from foreign governments. For consulates interested in streamlining the process for high volumes of visa applications, Travisa Outsourcing is an efficient, reliable, and convenient option. Travisa Outsourcing assumes the administrative tasks of visa processing, freeing up embassy and consulate staff to focus on more important tasks.
Since October 2007, Travisa Outsourcing has been the exclusive provider of visas for U.S. travelers to India. In fact, it is the only U.S. company to handle visa outsourcing for an entire country. The company won the contract after a competitive bid process.
Travisa Outsourcing handles all types of visa requests, including: tourist, business, conference, transit, entry, employment, student, research, missionary, journalist, and transfer of visa. There are a few exceptions such as with diplomatic and official passports which continue to be processed through the Indian Embassy and consulates. Travisa Outsourcing processes more than 350,000 Indian visa applications annually with that number expected to increase to more than 400,000 in 2008. Headquartered in Washington, DC, Travisa Outsourcing has regional offices in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Houston.
Travisa Outsourcing makes obtaining a visa easy, efficient, and secure. It has streamlined the process with an online application that travelers can download, complete, and mail or submit in-person to Travisa Outsourcing's regional offices. Once Travisa Outsourcing has collected the application form and supporting documentation, it submits them to the consulate for processing.

Travisa Outsourcing has pioneered a new visa processing system. It developed proprietary technology that enables its customers to track the status of their visa application online in real-time, much like they would a Fed Ex package. A popular feature among customers, online tracking offers applicants the peace-of-mind of knowing that their passport is handled safely and efficiently. Updates to a traveler's personal application are viewable with his or her uniquely generated password.
