In times of uncertainty, whether it’s health concerns, career dilemmas, or relationship issues, individuals often seek solace in their faith, turning to the divine for guidance, resolution, and blessings. Devotees often present the most unexpected petitions to the divine, from trivial matters to significant ones like securing a visa approval. Believe it or not, it happens!

Once you have decided on the destination, the itinerary and shortlisted your international tour package, the next step is to get your travel visa document sorted. While some countries provide visa-free/visa on arrival facility for Indians (Thailand visa, Maldives visa, Bali visa etc), many other countries require Indians to apply for the visa in advance (Dubai visa, US visa, UK visa, Singapore visa, Schengen visa etc.). And the visa application process differs from country to country! While countries like the UAE, Singapore and Sri Lanka have an easy online visa process, the visa application process for the major tourism players such as the US, UK, Canada and Australia can be difficult and complicated with tedious paperwork, physical document submission and personal interview.

Have you experienced visa hiccups too? After applying for visa online, have you also spent days in anticipation of whether it will be approved or not? We feel you! The fear of a visa rejection makes people react differently; while some wait patiently with their fingers crossed, others go to great heights to increase their chances of visa approval. For instance: visiting sacred sites for seeking blessings from the almighty for visa approval!
