The BCIC has developed excellent and extensive contacts with Foreign Embassies and Trade Offices in India and counterpart Associations in other countries.
The BCIC has been successfully issuing the recommendation letter at a very nominal fee for more than three decades. Since BCIC has excellent working relationships with all the High Commission/Trade Offices, it is needless to mention that our recommendation has its own credibility that would expedite the process of Visa issuance.
The Chamber has been authorized by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) to issue the Certificate of Origin (Non Preferential) to exporters for the products manufactured in India. This Certificate is an integral part of the export document process.
