Wari and TBLDC Come Together to Make Visa Processes Efficient for the UAE

CFO Tech Outlook | Monday, September 20, 2021

The partnership between Wari and TBLDC arose from the two companies' common desire to see Africa's progress.

FREMONT, CA: Wari, a global platform that provides digital financial services, collaborates with TBLDC to make the visa procedure for African visitors to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) more efficient. TBLDC clients in Africa will be able to use Wari's highly secure network to pay for their visas online via WhatsApp Messenger and the myWari mobile application.

The collaboration between Wari and TBLDC arose from the two companies' common desire to see Africa's progress. Clients throughout Africa can manage their visa applications and pay in their local currency via the portal. The UAE is the second most visited country in the Middle East, with over 18 million unique business and tourist visitors each year. While the UAE is the first country to test this technology, TBDLC has intentions to extend to other countries. Wari and TBLDC's cooperation will relieve millions of African travelers, which will provide an effective and secure platform for payments and visa issuance, and finalization.

"We are excited about this partnership and are proud that TBLDC has chosen Wari as its payment platform of choice for the UAE visa process. This partnership will provide TBLDC clients in Africa with a hassle-free visa process by providing low-cost, secure payments via Visa or MasterCard completely remotely. By joining forces with TBLDC, Wari has contributed to simplifying UAE visa processes, providing a stress-free visa completion process for TBLDC. Clients can follow quick steps using the myWari either on a mobile phone or PC to complete their transactions. Further, clients will be rewarded for referring contacts through the Wari Ambassador program. It is truly a win-win for everyone!" says Pape Diene, Head of Marketing and Communications, Wari.

"TBLDC is harnessing the power of financial technology to ease people's travel from Africa to UAE. Currently, the process required for African travelers to secure a UAE visa is complicated and tedious. We will simplify this process by partnering with Wari, enabling clients to start and complete the entire visa acquisition procedure online without ever physically visiting an embassy. We want to harness the over 62 percent internet connectivity in Africa to ease a traditionally tiresome process. It is a simple solution to a huge problem," adds William Opili, Vice President, BLDC.
