VFS Global has built its business on the three pillars of Trust, Technique and Technology. This three-pronged approach enables VFS Global to maximise convenience and efficiency for both diplomatic missions as well as applicants. To ensure that all transactions performed are secure, safe and confidential, VFS Global has put in place privacy protection control systems designed to ensure the highest standards of security and confidentiality. The company also has an on-going programme to address information security risks within various business processes, to make certain that all operations are ISO compliant.
