The INS Zoom immigration conference was on Oct 28, 2015 in Bangalore, India. We had participation from the Industry, US Consulate and several law firms from across the globe. Zoomlee was a sponsor and is proud to share some freehand sketch the participants created as part of fun at the conference! We are pleased to post some of the winning entries of the art contest. Watch out for more in this space.
Zoomlee is a star in my eyes and here’s why…
I am an avid traveler, and love to be on-the-go exploring places. This calls for effective and safe organization of important documents, without which I can’t get far. With the new Zoomlee app, my dedicated time to prepare documents for my travel has vanished. Prior to my travel dates, I don’t set aside a day anymore, to merely sort out files and documents, gathering important documents that I would require. Zoomlee has taken away that extra time and effort off my shoulders.
With Zoomlee’s incredibly intelligent features, I can upload necessary documents with relevant dates from anywhere at any time, and forget about them. Here is the coolest part, Zoomlee even notified me when my passport was about to expire. Now, that’s what I call a SMART app! I was able to share documents with my family members, hassle-free. There was no need to hunt for a local scanning store carrying around my documents. As long as I was connected to the internet, sharing documents was only a click away.
Not to mention, calling for emergency help is made easier than ever before. One can find the nearest police stations, hospitals, consulates, embassies, and more only on Zoomlee. Personally, I am not aware of an application that makes traveling overseas easier than Zoomlee does. No matter which corner of the world I am in, whatever may be the local time, Zoomlee has always got my back. I say this with first-hand experience using Zoomlee to my satisfaction. Download it NOW my friends!

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)
- Keynote (.key.zip)
- Numbers (.numbers.zip)
- Pages (.pages.zip)
- PDF (.pdf)
- PowerPoint (.ppt)
- Word (.doc)
- Rich Text Format (.rtf)
- Rich Text Format Directory (.rtfd.zip)
Zoomlee was created as a travel and compliance app that stores and protects your documents; however, there are so many unique features built into this single app specifically designed to make international travel, study, and living easy and safe. One of the newer features is the ability to access every document you have stored even when you are in an exotic location with no network connection.
Zoomlee makes international travel pain free with features designed for frequent travelers.
- Store your documents in one place
- Tag each trip with Zoomlee’s TAG feature
- Track your international taxes and remain compliant
- Use Zoomlee’s BeSafe feature to locate the nearest police station or consulate when you’re traveling abroad
- Track expiration dates for passports, visas, driver’s license, etc.
- Print Customs Declaration Form before you leave for the airport
Travel safe and stress free with Zoomlee…
Why Zoomlee is different than any other app? This is much MORE than the average travel app. Zoomlee is the very first app to digitally track, alert and store immigration compliance documents. (Read the press release online by visiting PRWeb.)
Zoomlee (http://www.zoomlee.com), is the world’s first intelligent storage application engineered to securely store all personal and immigration documents. Developed for the international traveler in the digital age, Zoomlee officially launched today and can be downloaded for free. The Zoomlee app is built with end-to-end security features to eliminate the risk and complexity international travelers face everyday.
Users have the option to download a customized app to fit their specific needs. With multiple adaptations of the app to choose from, there is a version to satisfy the needs of every corporate traveler, student studying abroad, frequent international tourist or an entire family traveling together.
Zoomlee was developed with multiple goals and will change international travel as we’ve known it. As the world’s first app that configures to your travel and immigration needs with security at the very core, Zoomlee is now available to download from the App Store and Google Play.
We all fear being stuck in a far away country with no travel documents to get home… Ironically, many humans fear storing those same documents on a secure digital device. Despite what you may think, human error IS avoidable and cloud implementations CAN be designed to guarantee user data is secure.
Many people don’t know they can, or simply don’t know how to, protect both IOS and Android smartphones by enable and verify data protection. This is as simple as putting your phone on airplane mode. Both devices have built-in encryption and you can turn them on in your settings.
iOS user? Enable and verify data protection in seconds. For more information refer to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202064
Android user? Enable and verify data protection in seconds. For Android please refer to https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/2844831
Again, your data is absolutely safe in the cloud. Zoomlee has implemented AES 256 encryption (again, the world’s best security standard) to protect your data. AES256 is a symmetrical encryption algorithm that has become ubiquitous, this is the exact same algorithm that both North American and Canadian governments use for encrypting highly classified data both in route and where it is hosted.
