Thank you VSL, both services you offered were fantastic and extremely professional
Having recently travelled to Sierra Leone to visit family, I was greatly impressed with the service VSL offered, both in helping to obtain a VISA, and also in meeting us at the airport and getting us onto the boat across to the mainland.
Having to sort out a VISA for travel is a real pain – I certainly didn’t want to have to visit the Sierra Leone embassy in London twice. Thankfully VSL offer a fantastic service where by sending one email and paying the VISA fee, they will arrange your VISA for you. In the email you have to send a few details and a scan of the picture page of your passport. Easy as that! It’s done quickly and payment is secure, through PayPal. Within a couple of days we had our VISAs emailed back to us to print off. Perfect and no hassle at all!
The first time you arrive in Freetown you have to get a boat across the water to the mainland (a 30 minute journey). It can be a bit daunting after a long journey, as you will have a lot of people trying to get you to use their company in the baggage reclaim hall. Thankfully, VSL arranged for someone to meet us once through arrivals who already had our tickets. He walked us to the ‘Sea Coach’ terminal, ensured our baggage was put on the correct bus and also took us to the bus we needed to be on (it’s a five minute bus ride from the airport to the boat).
I can’t recommend this service enough, it put our minds at rest knowing that someone would be meeting us at the airport in the early hours and it was one less thing to worry about when travelling.
Thank you VSL, both services you offered were fantastic and extremely professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both to anyone travelling to Salone!
