GREENVILLE, S.C. AND CHICAGO – JANUARY 19, 2021– Envoy Global, the technology leader that combines access to top legal talent with industry leading technology to bring efficiency and transparency to the global immigration process, and Argo, the world’s first company to create a cutting-edge technology platform which connects visa applicants with former consular officers, today announce a new partnership.
Employers and foreign nationals today are tasked with navigating the ever-evolving visa application process amid a changing and uncertain environment. Through the alliance, Argo will provide Envoy Global’s corporate customers and sponsored employees with the ability to better prepare for consular visa interviews to reduce the likelihood of denials or other delays to the visa process for time sensitive and otherwise crucial applications with support from former U.S. Consular Officers who have interviewed tens of thousands of visa applicants at U.S. embassies and consulates around the world.
“We are thrilled to bring the experience of former U.S. Consular Officers to the clients of Envoy. As subject matter experts on the visa process with the perspective of consular officers, our Argo Officers have made decisions on more than 893,000 visa applications,” said Mandy Feuerbacher, EVP of Consular Affairs at Argo. “Argo Officers’ on the ground knowledge of consular processing and visa interviews will undoubtedly benefit the global talent that Envoy’s clients are recruiting from around the world.”
With Envoy representing more than 1000 corporate customers, sponsored employees will now be able to leverage Argo’s services to have more enhanced and accurate information on how to prepare for a successful visa interview. Combined with Envoy’s technology, users will now have access to a streamlined platform and true insider information on the happenings within the visa application window.
“Our decision to partner with Argo furthers Envoy’s mission to combine the best of technology and immigration proficiency in the only unified service offering for leading corporate mobility programs,” said Richard Burke, CEO at Envoy Global. “This partnership comes at a time where Argo’s expertise in the consular interview process could not be more important for sponsored employees looking to find and secure work in the United States. We’re looking forward to continuing the empowerment of employers and foreign nationals to make the immigration process as efficient, seamless and transparent as possible.”
Argo is the world’s first company to create a cutting-edge technology platform which will connect visa applicants with former consular officers who have personal experience with how decisions are made on who is eligible for a U.S. visa. For the first time, clients will have true insider information on what is happening behind the visa window. By using Argo, visa applicants will also have the best and most accurate information on how to prepare for a successful interview, whether it is for tourism, studying, employment, or permanent residence in the United States.
