How Long does it take?

The first part is the Pre-Approval phase — in which the applicant completes the application Nomination Form and submits this with some documentation requirements, and a USD 5,000 fee. This process usually takes around 10 days. This fee is non refundable.

Once Pre-Approval is provided, the Second Phase starts with all the documents required being submitted together with the full payment. This process, subject to the documentation being in order, takes between 30 to 90 days. Usually, this can be achieved in 30 days with the guidance of the VIMB Representatives assisting the applicant with their preparation of documents.
