May 19 - Etihad Airways has launched an online visa-processing service, the airline announced yesterday.
The service has been launched in collaboration Indian-based TT Services, which has already been contracted as a visa outsourcing service provider in India, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Sweden, Russia and the UAE.

“The service allows citizens and residents of the country where it is available, travelling on Etihad Airways to the UAE, to apply for quick and easy visa processing,” said the carrier’s spokesperson.

It includes a dedicated website to provide information, submit applications and check status; offices to collect the applications and receive customer support; and a nationwide courier service to collect visa applications.
