Iselin, N.J. — The Federation of Indian Associations-Tristate recently hosted the first Indian Visa camp here in partnership with CGI-NY, Cox & King Global services, and Indus American Bank.
The inaugural function of the Indian Visa camp was inaugurated by Dhirendra Singh, consular, Passport, Visa & OCI/PIO; Anil Bansal, executive chairman and founder of Indus American Bank; Kiran Nambiar, country manager, United States at Cox & Kings Global Services; Ramesh Patel, chairman FIA; Ankur Vaidya, president FIA; H.R. Shah, FIA trustee and CEO of TV Asia; and Andy Bhatia of FIA.
The inaugural function was attended by dignitaries, executive committee members of FIA, and executives from Indus American bank. CKGS, assisted by FIA volunteers, processed more than 130 applications despite the inclement weather.
The main goal of the camp is to streamline the process, which in turn will help the applicants better understand the process and documentation-compliance surrounding the offered services, which are Visa, OCI and renunciation.
CKGS, a specialist business process outsource organization, focuses on serving consular sections of diplomatic missions. CKGS render services by providing administrative support and managing non-judgmental tasks related to the entire lifecycle of a visa, passport and consular application process, enabling missions to focus on the key tasks of adjudication.
As part of the Memorandum of Understanding, the involved parties will hold these camps to accept visa, OCI and Renunciation applications and assist in the cities of Iselin, Edison, Plainsboro as well as Hicksville, Long Island.
