The Plain English Version:
Travel Visa Pro acts only as an expediting agent, and only Embassy/consular officials and U.S. Passport Office agents make the final determination when deciding how fast a visa or passport will be issued and for what period of time (validity). Travel Visa Pro is not, and shall not be, responsible for the actions and inactions of Embassies, Consulates, the U.S. Passport Agency, government or commercial shipping service (such as USPS, FedEx, UPS or others). Consulates and U.S. Passport Services reserve the right to prioritize the processing according to the departure date provided by the applicant, may require additional paperwork, or may request the applicant to appear in person. This does not happen often, but please be aware that delays can occur. Travel Visa Pro is not responsible for any delays in your travel outside of our control.
WARNING: Non-refundable tickets, tours, hotels or other reservations should not be purchased until all visas and passports are secured and in your possession. Travel Visa Pro shall in no way be liable to you in the event that the services it provides are not suitable for your particular purpose, even if Travel Visa Pro is aware of such purpose.
Prior to placing an order, you should ensure that you have reviewed these Terms and Conditions and that they are acceptable to you. By sending your order to Travel Visa Pro, you unconditionally accept the below terms and conditions, including but not limited to that Travel Visa Pro is not liable for any action or inaction of any commercial or government entity and that Travel Visa Pro’s liability is limited only to the “service” which it provides.
EMERGENCY PASSPORT APPOINTMENT SYSTEM: U.S. Passport Agency has set a daily limit for EMERGENCY Passports Applications. In order to better manage our customers’ needs against limited availability, Travel Visa Pro uses an appointment system. We require all customers, who need EMERGENCY passports service, to place an order online for appointment confirmation. If you send your paperwork in without a confirmed appointment, we cannot guarantee we can honor your request for an Emergency Passport service. Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Travel Visa Pro will debit your credit card the full amount of the transaction.
EMERGENCY PASSPORT REFUND POLICY: Once your emergency order is placed in our system we will review to determine if we can accommodate your request. If the timeframe is too short (e.g. new passport request for travel at noon the following day) or if we don’t have space in our system to accommodate your order or if a concierge order is placed for an unavailable service (e.g. renewal of a passport for a minor) we will contact you to discuss possible solutions. If we are unable to accommodate your requirements and you wish to cancel your order we will refund your full amount less $100. If we can accommodate your order, we secure an appointment for you. Should your documents fail to arrive at our office by the required time, or you cancel within 24 hours of the submission time, we will issue a credit your card less a $250 appointment fee.
Processing time for visas and passports quoted by Travel Visa Pro are estimates based on published times and our experience with foreign embassies and US passport agency in usual circumstances, and are reliable in most cases, but are not guaranteed. Travel Visa Pro is not and shall not be responsible for slower/faster processing times.
CONCIERGE SERVICE REFUND POLICY: This service is custom tailored to each applicant’s unique situation. Once a Concierge Service order is placed, a dedicated Concierge Service representative is assigned to the case and begins reviewing options even prior to contacting the client. Once our Concierge Service has been ordered our refund policy in force. If the traveler’s request is not something that Travel Visa Pro can assist with, or the service was selected in error, a full refund will be issued less $17 to cover credit card transaction fees. Once the TVP Concierge Service representative meets with the traveler or traveler’s representative to discuss the details of the situation and then the Concierge Service is cancelled, a full refund will be issued less $50 to cover our agent’s time and credit card transaction fees. If you choose to continue after this initial consultation, Concierge Service is non-refundable. Under no circumstances does Concierge Service guarantee faster processing than any other Travel Visa Pro service.
You’re required to prepay for all services. All consular/government fees are non-refundable once service processing has begun. In the case where a visa or passport application has been canceled or rejected, the service fee will be non-refundable. If a mistake is on a passport or visa the error shall lie with the issuing authority, not Travel Visa Pro. Travel Visa Pro MAY be able to assist with having the error fixed, however the decision, and any additionally required documentation, will be determined by the issuing authority. If your trip has been postponed or dates are changed, some consulates permit visa correction for a fee. Any feedback shown on the website is the opinion of people who have used our services. We take no responsibility for such opinions, and you may not rely on these opinions as reflective of what you should expect of Travel Visa Pro.
