Most visa applications take place through travel agencies, take weeks to process and are unnecessarily expensive. Traversal aims to condense this process into a versatile, standalone travel app.
Given a unique opportunity to connect with various consulates, Traversal is able to expedite the visa application process and send it straight to review, greatly reducing the pain point for business travelers.
Application User Flow
Simplified Visa Applications
Applications All In App
Business Travelers often complain about the lengthy visa application process. Traversal has simplified it into 6 steps, allowing users to submit the form in less than 5 minutes.
Visa Status Updates
Keep Track of Applications
After submitting an application, Traversal will help keep track of status updates, from approvals to delivery. Traversal will also reach out to users if an application is rejected to help correct any errors.
Reducing Input Time
Passport Scans will greatly decrease the time it takes to input details. Traversal has engineered a way to identify a majority of the fields simply by scanning or uploading a passport. Traversal also doesn’t store passport photo data to avoid privacy issues.
Quick Visa Lookups
Not all countries need a visa based on your details. Traversal provides a quick lookup to see if the country you’re visiting needs a visa for entry.
Simplifying the Visa Application Process
Categorizing Visa Types
The visa application process for many countries is a complicated and time consuming task. In Vietnam (our first visa application market), there are roughly 20 different visa types, most of which can be condensed into a few categories with tiers based on entry type, duration, and purpose. We simplified the decision process by categorizing these visas into tiers based on time sensitivity and requirement uniqueness.
Condensing the Application
We condensed the process into 5 main steps based off commonalities. These steps were comprised of entry form sections that would be parsed into the actual application on the backend, and sent directly to the consulate.
Identifying Supporting Features
We added features centered around the Visa Application process, categorized into Facilitators and/or Reminders. Facilitators would help a user reduce the amount of time needed to complete an application, while Reminders would instigate repeated usage:
