Cialfo & VFS Global

Cialfo is working with VFS Global in order to assist students (if they choose to avail of the Visa application service) in visa preparation and issuance for when they go abroad for university.

The Student Education Advisor (SEA) works with the VFS Global point of contact (POC) once the student has accepted the offer from the university.

The VFS Global POC will work do the following:

  • Work with the student and/or family for document preparation, visa fees payment, visa appointment scheduling, and submission of visa application.

  • Depending on the country of destination, the student will be provided a mock visa interview to prepare for the visa interview

  • After the visa has been approved, the SEA will support the student with the pre-departure preparation


While the VFS Global fee around USD $250-300 per applicant, Cialfo will be absorbing these costs, for the first visa attempt of the student only. The visa fees themselves will need to be paid by the student and/or the family of the student.
