WariWari, a global platform offering digital financial services, has announced a partnership with TBLDC to provide a more effective visa process for African travellers intending to visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE). TBLDC clients in Africa will benefit from Wari’s highly secure network to access low-cost visa process payment online via WhatsApp Messenger and the myWari mobile app.

“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’s truly a win-win for everyone!” shared Wari, Head of Marketing and Communications, Pape Diene.

Vice President of TBLDC, William Opili said, “TBLDC is harnessing the power of financial technology to ease people’s travel from Africa to UAE. Currently, the process required for African travellers 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% internet connectivity in Africa to ease a traditionally tiresome process. It’s a simple solution to a huge problem.”

The partnership between Wari and TBLDC was birthed from the two companies shared determination to move Africa forward. The platform will enable clients in Africa to conveniently manage the visa application process and pay in their local currency. With over 18 million business and tourist visitors every year, the UAE is the second most frequented country in the Middle East. While the UAE is the first destination this platform is being piloted, TBDLC has plans to expand to other territories.

Wari and TBLDC’s partnership will relieve millions of travellers from Africa from the stressful visa processes, providing an efficient and secure platform for payments and visa finalisation and issuance.
