❌ Slow in processing applications. Some articles say that the visa is approved in two business days, but in practice, the process can take more than 2 weeks. There are reviews that say more than 20 days. To speed up, it's better to call the EDB office on +230 210 9418 (direct line of Premium Visa's department). Those who have applied for a visa describe the same case. Premium Visa is not issued until the previous tourist visa expires. The new visa cannot start working while the old visa is still active. The main concern is if the processing time is more than the end date tourist visa.
