SUPPORTED BY DROPBOX INC.
PLEASE READ THE BELOW IMPORTANT POINTS CAREFULLY
PASSWORD PROTECT SENSITIVE DOCUMENTS (VERY IMPORTANT): It is highly advisable that you password protect all sensitive documentation. This process is very crucial and therefore Global Visas has created a brief outline below on how to password protect the two most common document types (Microsoft Word / Office and PDF). If you wish to discuss a different document type, please do not hesitate to contact our team. You must thereafter work with your visa specialist to securely share the password.
Although our team and Dropbox inc. provides the upmost levels of security and data protection – we fundamentally believe given the sensitive nature of immigration documents, all security measures where available should be taken.
WHAT IS DRAG N' DROP AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
Historically Consular / Visa providers have never reviewed scans of any documentation prior to receiving the originals. Inevitably, if there was any errors in the documentation (see list of common and critical errors below), this would not be noticed until a stage where the application was ready for submission. Whether this be an issue related to scope of service / fees or in general not having a solution, it ultimately meant returning the originals to the applicant for correction or requesting amended documents.
The above directly caused delays in submission of applications / missed travel dates. In a modern world where travel is so accessible and frequently unplanned / last minute, the need to avoid such situations is growing immensely.
As repeatedly evident across our website, DRAG N’ DROP is a major part of our service. By offering a compliant, efficient and effective document review service, along with with reduced fees, Global Visas is fundamentally changing the past approach of a Consular / Visa provider.
HOW DOES DRAG N' DROP WORK?
The process of DRAG N’ DROP is very simple in terms of what it offers. A encrypted Dropbox Inc. file request weblink, created individually for each applicant. As a growing concern in the world of technology and information security; the issue of sharing documents via emails has long dominated the immigration industry and other sectors. DRAG N’ DROP is also addressing this concern at the same time.
REVIEW REQUIREMENTS / COMPLETE REQUEST FORM: Please access the Global Visas homepage and obtain your relevant visa instructions. If a visa is required, proceed to the visa request form and complete payment. You will receive an initial order confirmation email with your submitted data.
AWAIT GLOBAL VISAS DRAG N' DROP EMAIL (SUPPORTED BY DROPBOX INC.): A second additional email will be sent to you from our team within 1 - 2 business hours of receiving your completed visa request form. This email will contain a customised / individual Dropbox Inc. file request weblink.
UPLOAD SCANS OF ALL DOCUMENTS TO CUSTOM DROPBOX INC. WEBLINK: After accessing the Dropbox Inc. file request weblink, you will be able upload clear colour scans of all supporting documentation. Dropbox accepts all common file types and has an upload size limit of 20GB. The weblink can be accessed multiple times but has a one month expiry date (for security purposes - see below for further information). You will also be requested to input your name and email address; upon completion you will receive a confirmation email from Dropbox Inc. outlining your uploaded documentation.
GLOBAL VISAS WILL REVIEW ALL SCANS AND CONFIRM ANY AMENDS (IF REQUIRED): After you have uploaded all documentation for review, our team will receive a notification in our mailbox confirming the same. Your designated visa agent will then review and revert back to you with final confirmation or indicate if any amendments are required. Accordingly and/or thereafter you will receive approval to send all original documents to our offices for visa processing / Embassy submission (NOT APPLICABLE to E-Visa or REVIEW ONLY applicants, where for the latter a third party cannot act as a filing agent / your physical appearance is required).
WHY IS USING DROPBOX INC. (GLOBAL CLOUD BASED FILE SHARING SERVICE) IDEAL?
Dropbox Inc. is the world’s leading cloud based file sharing service. It is used by over 400,000 teams around the world and has unparalleled levels of data encryption and data privacy. Moreover, its file request weblink is an ideal fit for Global Visas DRAG N’ DROP function.
MODERN DATA ENCRYPTION / DATA PRIVACY: Dropbox Inc. is designed with multiple layers of protection, including secure data transfer, encryption, network configuration and application-level controls distributed across a scalable, secure infrastructure. Ultimately this means whether at the stage of uploading documentation or a member of the Global Visas team accessing your information for review, Dropbox Inc. has created an environment which constantly prioritises, protects and reinforces data security.
NO MORE DATA SECURITY CONCERNS WITH EMAIL ATTACHMENTS: As outlined above, data security and email attachments is always a contentious issue in the world of immigration / visas. Naturally, due the sensitive nature of visa applications, sharing supporting documents as email file attachments (which lacks the sufficient levels of data encryption), means a cloud based file sharing service is an ideal solution.
INDIVIDUAL / CUSTOMISED DROPBOX INC. FILE REQUEST WEBLINKS: Global Visas has chosen to utilise the Dropbox Inc. file request weblink service. Individual and customised Dropbox Inc. weblinks, where an end user can upload scans of all documentation into their own space on the Global Visas Dropbox business profile. By not sharing an upload function with other end users again adds greater levels of security.
TIME LIMITED FILE REQUESTS: All Dropbox Inc. file request weblinks have a one month expiry date from date of creation. Global Visas has chosen to implement this additional security measure to ensure no request is kept open for an infinite period. Should the one month date become very close or pass and you are yet to complete the review process - please simply request your visa agent to extend the expiry date / send a new Dropbox Inc. file request weblink.
INCREASED FILE UPLOAD SIZE LIMITS (UP TO 20GB): Again as mentioned above, each file request upload has a size limit of 20GB and furthermore, a user may access the weblink multiple times to add additional documents. This categorically and by some margin, beats all current forms of document upload for size limits.
If you have any queries regarding the DRAG N' DROP function, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Global Immigration Leader, Big 4
“Manny. You have really gone the extra mile in supporting the US Business Visitor Service. You have demonstrated real commitment and energy, working a late shift night while we try and find others to fill the position. I know that the other night you stayed until 4am. You are always so positive and your cheerful disposition and attention to detail has resulted in excellent client feedback. On Monday the key client came to London and she was effusive about the service. This is largely due the cover you provide.”
Internal stakeholder, Big 4
“Manny is a big reason why the move from (external provider) to the UK firm’s passport and visa provision has been so smooth. He’s an extremely likeable honest hard working guy who takes his role very seriously. We’re very fortunate to have him leading our dedicated team”
External client, Private practise
“Most of my contact was with Manpreet Singh Johal. He did the best job someone could imagine. Extraordinary service from his side.”
Team member, Big 4
“Working on two priority accounts is naturally pressurised especially where he has also been responsible for billing on both accounts; yet Manny delivers every time and this I believe is an exceptional quality.”
