(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - May 22nd, 2014 - Simple Visa LLC , the visa specialist, has today announced the launch of its new smartphone app, SimpleVisa USA. This free iPhone app allows travelers that are citizens or nationals of countries participating in the US Visa Waiver Program to retrieve existing visas, or even submit new visa waivers for a fee when they want to visit the USA with a simple scan of their passport.

With thirty eight countries already registered to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) , citizens or nationals from these countries can use the SimpleVisa USA app, which works seamlessly with the US Government Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA). Whether the user is a frequent flyer, first time traveler or someone that simply does not have the time to learn how to get a visa to enter the United States, the SimpleVisa USA app makes obtaining a visa a breeze.

“Mobile technology has gone from strength to strength recently as we can now book a flight; change our flight, book a hotel and book tours and excursions before we’ve even reached our destination with just a few taps on our smartphone’s screen. So why does getting a visa have to be such a pain? Well, until now, it was rather difficult getting a visa,” said Loris Mazloum, CEO of Simple Visa LLC. “At SimpleVisa, we thought it was about time the visa process caught up with the rest of the travel industry. Our new SimpleVisa USA app makes electronic travel visa obtention and management a breeze, for both frequent flyers and first time travelers.”

The SimpleVisa team is planning on developing a set of visa apps for a variety of countries that offer electronic visas but are not part of the VWP. The team will continually update the current app so that it’s in line with Apple’s latest software offerings.
