Safer Travel with Secure Travel Documents


When travelling abroad, things that are merely inconvenient at home become disasters in a foreign country. Expired documents, lost wallet, missing paperwork, on a business trip are headaches at the least, or can get you jailed or deported at the worst.


Our immigration law firm Visawolf manages global travel and work visas for hundreds of corporate travelers every year.  We advise them to make copies of their physical documents for reference if needed during the trip.

Tips for safer overseas corporate travels include:

  • Saving a photo of the front and back of each credit card. Having the card data backed up is important for reporting a lost card and requesting a replacement.  The number of the issuer is on the back of the card, and the front has all the information you need to reference your account.
  • Pics of your driver’s license, visa, and passport is handy as well, in case your paperwork is lost or destroyed on your trip. It will be easier to report your case to the consulate or police with a back up of your identification.
  • Carry an emergency contact list of important numbers in-country, and back home. Too often we hit Speed Dial on our favorite numbers, and cannot recall the specific phone numbers. Also include contact info for your corporate travel booker, local office, hotel, and local friends.

The least secure way to back up your information is to make photocopies and carry paper printouts.  This is old-school, and can be helpful in a pinch, but storing paper copies in your luggage or wallet means they can be lost, stolen, copied, or misplaced.

Slightly more safe is to save the backups as files on your computer or smart phone.  The downside is that the data might not be secure, and the device itself can be lost or compromised.

The most secure and our recommended way to back up travel docs, as well as gain access to many other travel features, is to use the Zoomlee app.  Storing data and docs in Zoomlee’s encrypted service provides access to backups on your device, as well as in the cloud, with secure data protection.  You can access information on your local device, from the cloud, and even share data safely with your family, lawyer, authorities, and co-workers.

In addition to having your global travel docs prepared by immigration professionals, keeping backups of those and other docs will help keep you safe as you travel. Contact Visawolf for your work visa and global travel services, and use Zoomlee app to store your documents.

Upload, TAG, and set alerts for documents in Excel, PDFs, Word, PowerPoint, Rich Text and more!

It wasn’t long ago that people had no other option than to scan their travel documents, send sensitive travel information to their email accounts, and finally store their passports, visas, trip itineraries, identification certificates, etc., in Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, OneDrive and other cloud storage alternatives.

There are endless problems with this system, but to address the most important one, none of them are securely built to protect your highly sensitive and private documents you need to travel internationally. Zoomlee was engineered to keep your personal identity safe while you travel. Passports, visas and other travel documents can be uploaded to Zoomlee as a PDF, Word Document, Excel, PowerPoint… almost any file format including:

  • Excel (.xls)

Customize Data Fields to Create Expiration Alerts


Every document you upload to Zoomlee can be customized to include multiple fields specific to that document. Passports can have tracking numbers, issue dates, expiration dates. Visas can have control numbers and expiration dates. Pending documents can have hyperlinked fields for case numbers so you can check the status of work permits or green cards – you can link each case directly to the USCIS official site so you can quickly track the status of your application.

Zoomlee Data Fields Feature


Any document that has an expiration date should be utilizing the Data Field feature. Zoomlee is set to remind you 1 month prior to the expiration date of critical documents like passports, driver’s licenses, visas, work permits, and travel insurance. Once you receive the first reminder that a document requires updates, you can then customize the alerts to come in 1 year, 6 months, 3 month, 1 week, or never before action is required.

Data Fields is one of the most unique features Zoomlee offers. No other travel app will track the expiration and case number of so many imperative documents. It is simple to input the information into the Data Fields, and in the long run, it saves you time and money when you aren’t running around at the last minute to renew your passport or paying a rush fee to get it ready before a trip.
