Passport Health, Travisa Alliance to Improve Total Care for International Travelers

BALTIMORE, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Extending its commitment to provide clients with a streamlined continuum of care, Passport Health (www.passporthealthusa.com), the nation's largest provider of travel medical services and immunizations, today announced a partnership with the nation's leading expeditor of Passports and Visas: Travisa (www.travisa.com).

"We are thrilled to have Travisa as a partner," announced Fran Lessans, CEO of Passport Health. "They share our values of superior customer service and reliability and provide a necessary service for our clients." The partnership is a natural alliance that has developed over the years, she went on to say, "but now it's official."

Both companies had humble beginnings over 15 years ago. "We joke that we started our business from our closets; but that is the truth," said Jan Dvorak, Travisa's founder and CEO. Both are entrepreneurs.

Passport Health provides a comprehensive suite of services tailored to the international traveler. Whether someone is traveling to India to close a business deal, or getting ready to complete adoption papers in China, Passport Health's medical professionals counsel travelers on everything there is to know about potential diseases that could harm them. The recommendations are specific to each traveler. "You have to know where they are going, their activities, where they will stay, time of year, altitude and their health history," said Lessans. "Only then can you recommend the immunizations and vaccinations that the client needs.

"Travisa's expertise and relationships with the embassies allow our clients to receive their visas and passports within a few days of ordering them. We have had clients that were leaving in less than 48 hours and Travisa has always come through."

Travisa is the sole provider of the Indian Visa, making it a perfect fit for Passport Health's clients whose number one destination is India. Travisa processes over 400,000 visa applications for the Indian Embassy. They have also secured a deal with the Russian consulates to process their visas.

"We provide information about Passport Health to all our clients. We care about their wellbeing and know that they will receive the best care and information from their Travel Medicine Specialists," concluded Dvorak. Passport Health sees over 20,000 clients every month through 170 offices nationwide. With summer just weeks away and despite a recession, both companies anticipate a strong season.
