How long does visa processing take?

Ruby Updated by Ruby

HelperChoice works with an ethical agency which does not charge the helper any placement fees to process the helper’s work visa. The visa processing will depend on your contract status and country of work.

For Hong Kong, the processing generally takes 4-6 weeks for new applicants/finished contract cases and 5-7 weeks for helpers terminated due to relocation/financial reasons.

For Saudi Arabia, the whole process take around 45 days for both first time applicants, finished or break contract helpers.
