Aimed at the consumer or traveller, the VisaPort Desktop or Consumer edition is the desktop equivalent of the VisaPort Smartphone App. One could also describe the Consumer Edition as the larger brother of the Smartphone Applications, and in a way it is very true, however, the Consumer Edition is far more than just a desktop version of the Smartphone. In fact, the Consumer Edition is a wrapper site for Travel agents, who serve their customers through a well designed and highly customizable front-end that mimics the best travel booking sites, but at the same token, gives the actual user full access to the vast features of the eGoVisa Framework including full enrolment capbilities, travel insurance (purchasing and claims), a complete electronic e-Visa process, access to accurate and real time visa and immigration data and off-course the most accurate and comprehensive travel database to date. The single sign-on allows you to mix and match travel agents without having to reveal all your details. At the same time, it gives the travel agents the power of reaching out to hundreds of millions of people across the world. All of your activities on the consumer portal can be easily interchanged with your Smartphone device, enabling you to start something in the Consumer portal and finish it on your mobile device or vice versa.
The Visa Schedule tool enables the ministry to set immigration policy for an individual country, a zone or for a travel purpose. Immigration schedules are linked to immigration directives maintaining a historical audit trail of why schedules were updated. Changes in immigration rules automatically trigger an automated news release to announce change. Each rule can be adapted to the 90/180 rule enabling embassies and border control to verify the eligibility of the traveller's entry rights. The immigritation shedule is communicated to both the VisaPort Smartphone application or the consumer edition in a visual manner maintaining the standardized look and feel of the VisaPort solution. Changes to immigration schedules can be performed in minutes with structured authorization layer in place to prevent the misuse or abuse of the feature.
