A Visa Application Tool is designed to guide visa applicants through the complex application requirements and visa selection process. The interactive tool ensures a consistent approach in checking standard requirements against the information provided by an applicant minimizing the potential for human error. As the user inserts information about their person, heritage and reason for application, the tool automatically determines the corresponding visa category, e.g. work, study, family, settlement or visitor visa etc., and auto-populates the relating forms to streamline an otherwise burdensome application process. This not only saves time for applicants but also for government officials during the assessment, process and issuance of the final visa.

A Visa Application Tool can also be integrated with identity verification software and government databases to run background checks, e.g. criminal background checks and immigration status checks, and to comply with international laws. In this way, the tool auto-assesses whether a provided travel document is valid for the required timeframe and whether any supporting documents are required at the time of application.

Background

Visa applications and assessments are often complex and time-consuming processes that strain both applicants and government resources. The online documentation provided for applicants often doesn’t suffice to ensure that forms and supporting documents are filled in fully and correctly with regard to the appropriate visa type. This means that most applications still require lengthy manual checks to identify and correct any mistakes. A Visa Application Tool makes the application process increasingly transparent as users are guided through an interactive questionnaire. The tool adapts to the user’s inputs and automatically assesses the correct visa type and required supporting documentation while checking provided user information against internal data sources to streamline the ID verification process and final eligibility assessment. The tool easily integrates into any government website and may be connected to government databases and verification software to simultaneously process background checks and identify risks faster. Leveraging BRYTER’s rule-based logic, the tool provides an individual risk profile for each applicant against custom risk criteria and auto-generates reports to track and process any identified red flags.

Assess eligibility

The rule-based logic of the tool auto-assesses the eligibility of the application against custom criteria and provides government officials with a full summary of the application and assessment to streamline the final decision. The tool may include sophisticated scoring to provide an overall risk rating for each application based on the Visa Application Tool’s analysis.
