Thus, we partnership with VFS Global to provide enhanced visa services to applicants from Riyadh, Al Khobar and Muscat. I am confident that the applicants will find value and benefit from launching of these new centres.”

China, VFS Global, said 'The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman is witnessing a growth in number of travellers to Greece for leisure and business.
