In 2016, he teamed up with his long-time friend Clevio Monteiro and started the first of its kind, tech based visa portal called Visa Lounge. Seamlessly merging his love for luxury travel in new undiscovered parts of the world, with his incredible sales and people skills, Vijay has turned his passion into 3 successful businesses, with a long and fruitful road ahead.
