US-based Geek Squad is one of many travel companies that is offering visa appointments to foreigners seeking to enter the country, according to a list posted online Tuesday.
The company, which advertises itself as a travel booking company, is offering appointments in major US cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.
While some of the appointments are limited to a single day, the list includes appointments in cities that can last up to two weeks.
Geeks can book hotel accommodations, meals and transportation with the company, but are required to show proof of a US visa.
The visa-issuing foreign nation must also give Geek Squad a copy of the visa they intend to visit.
The visa-invalidation requirements for entering the United Kingdom have been tightened in recent years, with the UK Home Office reporting a 40 percent rise in visa-overstays in 2016, according the Guardian.
The Geek Squad list also includes the likes of Airbnb, GoDaddy and TripAdvisor.
Airbnb, which is owned by Amazon, recently became the first company to be fined $20 million for illegally advertising its listings in London.
The UK Home Department has also been cracking down on websites offering accommodation on short-term contracts, a crackdown that has caused a steep rise in the number of short-stay foreign workers.
The DHS said it would work with the government to crack down on the practice, which it called “a dangerous and costly practice.”
Geeks, however, have been quick to respond to the government’s crackdown.
The Geek Squad website has been updated with a new, simplified process that will make it easier for those looking to enter to make the visa appointment.
“We are offering to help people enter the United State without the hassle of getting an official visa,” the company wrote in a blog post Tuesday.
“We also are offering a simple way to book a hotel in the US.
If you need a room and you have the right visa, we will let you know when we are ready to book your room.”
