A recently launched app aims to make the lives of travelers easier by expediting the U.S. visa application process.
With its patent-pending photo technology, SimpleVisa allows users to scan their passports and receive their United States visa waiver within a matter of minutes. The app helps users determine which visa is right for them, and submits the information automatically. In doing so, the company claims to expedite the process by as much as 60%.
“We thought about where the best entry point in this process would be to cut out as much of the time and effort involved as possible,” says founder Loris Mazloum, a French entrepreneur, “Because our users have cameras built into their devices already, the whole thing is reduced to one easy step that also eliminates the chance for manual error.”
By offering its services to the 38 countries on the United States’ visa waiver list, SimpleVisa aims to re-imagine the way foreigners obtain US visa waivers.
