Documents for visa application
When you are a participant in a cultural exchange program in the USA, part of our obligations under the contract for preparation of your application and participation in the program is to assist you in preparation and submitting of documents for US visa application. A requirement of the Consular section to the US Embassy in Bulgaria states that the participants in cultural-exchange programs submit their visa applications through the company which prepares and coordinates their program participation.

In order to process those sensitive personal data categories, we request your explicit consent. You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of the processing so far, but will prevent us from providing you the visa service.
The visa application form asks for personal data of parents, siblings, children and marital status. It is the Client’s responsibility to collect consent from them for sharing this information with us and with the US Embassy; in such case we consider that you have gathered in advance these categories of individuals’ valid consent that their personal data be shared with USIT COLOURS and that it be further transmitted by us to the US Embassy.
In any event, we collect and process the respective categories of personal data as indispensable requisites of the US visa application form.

When you purchase airline tickets from us, it is possible that we assist you in expressing your meal preferences during the flight (if the airline offers such choice), as well as in requesting а „meet and assist” service when you will be aided in reaching to and from the aircraft. There is a chance that the meal you choose to dis-close your religious beliefs, and the need for assistance – information about your health condition. As these are special (sensitive) categories of personal data, we process such requests for assistance, only after you give us your explicit consent for processing your preferences information through requesting them.
