Atlys raises $4.25M to make visa applications faster and easier

International travel is gradually reopening, but this means that business and pleasure tourists equally will have to consider visa limitations once again while flying.

Nobody enjoys the process of applying for a visa, but Atlys pledges to make it as painless as possible. Andreessen Horowitz led a $4.25 million seed investment round for the startup, which was revealed today.

Pinterest co-founders Ben Silbermann and Evan Sharp, as well as The Chainsmokers’ Mantis VC (yep, the Chainsmokers), Long Journey Ventures, South Park Commons Fund, and Ari Emanuel’s Endeavor, all participated in this round.

Atlys claims that working through the visa procedure for various nations may take up to 13 hours — and that’s before figuring out the ever-changing COVID testing and immunisation requirements. While most business travellers work with agencies that can speed up the process significantly, especially for recurrent applications, Atlys claims to be able to reduce the time to only five minutes.


Travelers use the company’s iPhone app to answer a few questions about their trips (where they are, where they are going, why they are travelling, and so on) and scan their papers.

There are some clever synergies here, such as the option to take passport photographs and then pick them up (or have them delivered) at Walgreens, or to get a letter of employment signed using DocuSign from your boss.

The cost varies depending on where you are and where you are going but usually averages around $50.
Mohak Nahta, who immigrated to the United States as an immigrant, created the corporation. “I’m ecstatic to have such a fantastic collection of investors behind Atlys and our purpose,” he added.

“It is with their great knowledge and assistance that we will advance in our goal to simplify travel and make it a seamless procedure for everyone.”

The new cash will be used to grow the company’s personnel and coverage across more nation pairings.

“We look for ‘founder-product fit’ in entrepreneurs, which means does the founder have a unique insight into the market or problem they’re attempting to solve?” “As an immigrant myself, I was struck by how thoroughly and emotionally Mohak understood the arduous immigration process, and how he was applying his knowledge to establish Atlys,” said Sriram Krishnan, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz.

“Atlys’ brilliance is in its ability to integrate numerous distinct systems behind the scenes while providing a simple, simplified end-customer experience,” says the company.
