Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I work at Namibia High Commission an African embassy. At the moment the system in the whole Namibian embassies abroad we are using hand written visas in the passports. But now we would like to make a recommendation to the Ministry in Namibia if we could change the system to printed visas. This means that we need to show them the disadvantages of a hand written visa and make recommendation of the advantages of a printed visa

Thank you.

Handwritten visas have many disadvantages:

  • time consuming to write out;
  • the handwriting may not be legible or understood by everyone;
  • more prone to abuse and fraud as handwriting may be erased or altered;
  • not keeping up with the times and the digital age;
  • more prone to errors.

Printed or typed out visas embrace modern technology, are less prone to alterations or fraud, especially if a passport photo is also printed on the visa, may be [produced more efficiently rather than wastage of time writing out visas, errors may be corrected easily with typed visas as opposed to handwritten ones, are more legible and clearer to read and understand by everyone, cheaper to produce in the long term, can be centrally controlled by the Ministry in Namibia.

Hope this helps
