Since our humble start in 2005, we have advanced into a trusted global tech-enabled services partner for governments and citizens. Within a little span of over a decade, we have grown to service 46 client governments in 60 countries through 12,287 global centres and have processed more than 52 million applications till date. BLS International is now considered a game changer, acknowledged leader in the domain of visa, passport, consular, e-governance, attestation, biometric, e-visa and retail services.
Rather than resting on our laurels, we have successfully expanded our scope and operations to cater to financial sector with our recently owned subsidiary Str. It is a matter of great pride for us that our people, working together in interdisciplinary teams, proactively aim at customer delight by providing quality services that protect our clients’ privacy and interests.
We have been working with multiple Governments/ Embassies such as Brazil, Spain, Italy, Hungary, USA, Canada, Estonia, Lebanon, Portugal, Vietnam, Morocco, Belarus, France, UAE, Thailand, etc. for visa outsourcing and consular services.
In 2018, we acquired StarFin, which has a network of over 1,900 customer service centres (CSC) across major northern states. StarFin acts as a business facilitator to traditional financial service providers lacking the last mile connectivity. It is licenced as the National Banking Correspondent (BC) for State Bank of India & Corporate BC for Uttarakhand Gramin Bank. We bring financial inclusion to the unserved and underserved rural population of India through this arm.
The future looks promising! Using our current achievements and relations with governments globally, we have plans underway for catalysing further expansion and growth.
