The tag office=visa has been proposed as part of a discussion of organisations offering visa assistance, from document preparation to submission and ultimate passport/visa collection. These are generally run by private companies.

Examples include companies such as TLScontact and VFS Global, among others.

Please note a difference to office=government immigration offices, where the latter is for official government offices which may offer visa services to immigrants and visitors who are already in the host country.
