Smart App

while applying for entry permit the visa type is not displayed in full. Difficult to use this service.
After completing the form when click on next it shows bad request alert and because of this cannot proceed to submit the form.

Great application with user friendly interface. However, needs enhancement as experienced.
1. Test result is a mandatory field for kids. which is actually not required.
2. More than one documet/photo upliad facility shall provide. In case, required in the same field( passport front and back)
3. pdf support may giv better ease of use..
