Cruise Lines

CIBTvisas provides cruise lines with an effective and streamlined process to alleviate the confusion associated with travel visa and passport processing for their guests.  CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Packs  are a fast, easy, and secure method for processing travel visas and passports for a large number of people at one time.

As the cruise industry seeks to expand exotic travel offerings, it is increasingly important that all participating guests meet the entry requirements for each port of call.  The CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Packs provide cruise participants with the necessary entry requirements for each cruise destination.

CIBTvisas’s Unique Services for Cruise Lines Include:

  1. CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Packs.  CIBTvisas provides Cruise Lines with a custom CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Pack that provides cruise participants with the necessary entry requirements for each cruise destination.

      Travellers are often unfamiliar with visa requirements and processing procedures when preparing to travel abroad. Travellers who may not have applied for visas in the past can easily follow the simple steps outlined in the CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Pack. Designed in an easy to read format, it is an efficient method of delivering visa requirements to cruise guests. The CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Pack includes all visa applications, requirements, processing times, and useful information specific to each port of call.

     

    The CIBTvisas Pre-Paid Tour Pack can be tailored to cover multiple countries on the cruise itinerary. CIBTvisas can also customise the pack with your cruise line logo to offer you an additional opportunity for branding.
